As time went on, I began to increase the dosages of ibuprofen especially on bad days. Every morning and every night I popped a pill or two. I accepted the growing pain in my stomach and uncomfortable heart burn from digesting synthetic over the counter medications.
Ibuprofen (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug)
Acetominophen (pain reliever)
Naproxen sodium (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug)
I thought, "Is this right? Do pain patients have only these very few choices before they have to ask a doctor for something with prescription strength? I don't want an opiate and NSAIDs aren't working."
I am a Pain Patient and I want a choice.
As Massachusetts opens up pain clinics to dispense addictive and socially accepted medication like vicodin, percocet, and oxycontin, Senator Keenan, Kevin Sabet, the MA Prevention Alliance, and the No on Question 3 Campaign oppose the upcoming Medical Marijuana Initiative and claim that pain is not a good enough reason to accept cannabis as a medication in this State.
All the while pain patients could very well be the vast majority that support Question 3.
Vote yes on Question 3.
