Doctors and nurses suggested marijuana might help. I had no idea where to get any. I was calling friends who were calling friends, and I finally found some. It was degrading for me to have to find some back-alley drug dealer to help my brother.
Within 15 minutes of smoking some marijuana, he wanted to eat. He was opening the cabinets looking for things to eat. I cried.
I had a total of six months with my brother. I truly believe he got the additional time because of the marijuana, which enabled him to eat.
I appreciate that the people of the state of Maine voted for and made these dispensaries happen. Shame on the newspaper for making it sound as if a crack house just opened.
