"It helped me to kick my pain killer addiction finally while giving me the relief needed"

When the wear and tear of decades of training for sports caught up to me 10 years ago I had to go on disability. Currently, I have had 10 related surgeries, had a rod put in my femur, a plate and artificial joints in my foot, 5 bulging lumbar discs, stenosis of the cervical spine and spondylosis of the sacrum. Along with osteoarthritis through every major joint even simple things like pulling my pants on became difficult. When I was sent to a pain clinic for treatment I was put on t-3’s – t-4’s but it gradually worked up to Percocet, Demerol, morphine, Dilaudid, Oxycontin and even methadone. My habit had gotten so bad I would chew 80mg oxycontin just to get some relief but my tolerance had gotten dangerously high.

I don’t have internet at home so I go to my oldest daughter’s place and she helps me order when I need to but I also got set up at a dispensary for patients so I can get what I need on my own. I like talking with the staff too about the different products that could work for me. If it’s closed for good, I’m really upset. Why did the city shut it down? It’s hard enough when there are shortages of what I need to use and then to be stuck with one option to get it doesn’t seem fair.

Dispensary Closure Cut Me Off From My Medicine

I have esophageal and liver cancer and I am highly dependent on cannabis oil to alleviate pain and nausea. I have relied on a medical dispensary in a nearby community to get my medication often, especially this season when poor weather has delayed mail. With my symptoms, I can’t afford to run out or wait for my meds to be shipped to me. Last week, mail deliveries were delayed again because of bad weather, so I made the trip to the dispensary. Unfortunately, it had been shut down. I’m kind of stuck now for access to my medicine and very frustrated on top of being in a lot of pain. Something needs to change.

Take Action Hamilton!

While retail solutions for recreational cannabis are rolling in, medical cannabis patients are being cut off from the same kind of in-community access. Medical dispensary closures are leaving patients at risk and without alternatives to the current mail-order system.

There IS a solution. Contact your councillors today tell them that patients deserve better!
