I'm sure this has been discussed but I don't see it so....has anyone been prescribed marijuana for their chronic pain? I understand it is prescribed for nausea and to help people gain weight bit I have not heard of it for spine related chronic pain. When I was on disability for cancer about 10 years ago, my doc prescribed Marinol which I understand is a type of man made marijuana. I'm in Virginia and I do not know if I could get it even if it works but I am curious. No smart butt comments please! :) Jerome

    It has been discussed hundreds of times, all the pro's / cons's etc.
    However almost everytime, the thread started to go down hill and name calling and other non appropriate forum behavior surfaced.

    For this reason, I am closing this thread. Like I said, using the search facility you will find all you want to read about this from different members
