Glad I found these forums and this site. I was a rec user (a joint here, a joint there) in my youth, but stopped when I went to the Air Force back in the 80's. I hadn't used cannabis since - until a few years back when I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. Started using on the recommendation of my doc, as anxiety and pain associated with my flare ups was tough to manage without using prescription drugs. Needless to say, it has helped me in ways I could never have imagined, and I will be an advocate until the day they shove my body in the final furnace!
