  1. I tried the Medical Marijuana and it did not work for my severe chronic back pain. It helped my pain but the Side effects and rights you loose while you have it are not worth it to me. I couldn’t handle the “stoned feeling” and did not like it at all! I was just trying to relieve my pain with something natural and healthier. I also did not know that even though it was legal in the State of AZ, that it was illegal as far as the federal government was concerned. If I would have known that, I would have never gotten my card in the first place! Another thing is that if you have a mmj card, you can no longer purchase any firearms because of the federal background check asks you if you are currently addicted to or currently use marijuana. So by default if you have the mmj card and you answer no to that, you are breaking the law and can be imprisoned. So like I said after doing more research and finding out all this new information, it was a no brainer for me, I immediately called the Maricopa County, AZ dept of health and got the information so I could surrender my mmj card. So, I am leaving my feedback to help other people before they make a decision that might not be right for them! It wasn’t right for me in more ways than one Thank You for listening.
