RA SUCKS/PAIN RELIEF

Yes RA sucks trust me I know I was diagnosed in 02, as a male it is even harder sometimes becuase you are not allow to complain. I have already had 1 joint replacement and will probably have to have a knee replaced in the near future. I was taking up to 60 vicoden a month which really were not helping, plus the side effect were really not liver friendly.
I found that marijuana works extremely well for me, I have been vicodene free for over a year, and while I still have the pain I deal with it much better, I am not as groggy, or as angry as I was when I was on the pain meds. The only issue I have is the state I live in it is still illegal, so my government has made me a crimminal for my pain relief. Try it if you are in a state that it is legal as I would never advocate doing something considered illegal.
