Got this problem: my wife is telling me to move out if I want to start a personal grow. I've been struggling with a chronic back pain for 5 years now. I had surgery 4 yrs ago and it resulted in a 50% improvement, which the medical field quantifies as success. I've had 4 epidurals last year which only helped marginally. My wife sees how disfunctional I am, provided the physical limitations and resulting depression. Have been taking a number of pain killers (mostly C-II) which only help to a point, not to mention all the side effects. Recently, when I read up on medical use of marijuana, and I found this forum a thought crossed my mind: what if this thing can help manage my pain? I never tried it before, but given all the feedback from people on this valuable forum, I am willing to give it a try. Here's the problem: my wife told me she is against me starting a personal grow. I think she's afraid of us getting busted and losing the house, my freedom (I do work full time despite my back problems). Also, she says the kids would have no future if I got caught, a valid point nonetheless. As far as the project itself, I have plenty of space in the basement and most of the equipment would be recycled from my old days of running a reef tank... Question: how do I convince her that this is worth a try? I understand the risks involved and the bad part is so does she. Any help would be appreciated.
P.S. NJ sucks
