I live in a state that allows certain people to qualify for medical marijuana. I haven't smoked the stuff myself since 1983 but am wondering if it would help. My sciatic pain is extreme and I feel hopeless. I know I haven't been injured for "that" long and others have suffered longer. I have been a pretty serious athlete and never would have considered smoking pot (except when I did in college) before this. I honestly want to know if anyone has tried pot for the pain and if it works. Thanks!
