Ruptured Disk Pain by Scott Petersdorf
I have been smoking pot since 1969, but it wasn't until about 1982 that I started smoking for its pain relieving effect. I had blown up a disk in my back, and the pain was excruciating. And so threeback surgeries and 20 years later, I am still of the opinion that it gives me relief and is much better than taking Vicodin. I was terribly addicted to that drug for 5 years, and the comedown can be worse than heroin. I wish there was somewhere close to Visalia Ca. where I could get some for medical reasons. The quality is so much better thru one of these places and gives better relief than what you get off the street.
