Hi I'm Robert and I am a ...

Spinal Fusion and Laminectomy survivor. I can barely walk now but I am a survivor. In 2007 I had anterior/posterior L4,L5,S1 fusion and after 6 years I just had a laminectomy @L3,L4 in May of 2014. I finally fought off my addiction to kill my pain with oxys and alcohol and I just started physical therapy but take muscle relaxers to ease some of the pain. Hoping one day my state legalizes medical marijuana for chronic pain patients like myself. So many lives and families could be saved by prescribing cannabis instead of synthetic heroin (oxys, roxys, loratabs, etc...) from pharmaceutical companies. I feel as a human being I have a right to treat my every day pain with something that is non lethal. Thank you.
