I had to go to the hospital for a surgical procedure this week, then normally, the nurses ask about the medications I take, our allergies to meds, plus if I used tobacco, alcohol, or narcotics. I told them I had been using medical marijuana for over a year, plus they didn’t even blink an eye. They didn’t ask the reason for the use of medical marijuana, or how much I used. This struck me as odd, because I had consistently thought of marijuana as a type of narcotic. I have a marijuana product that helps me sleep, plus one that eases the pain. I thought that’s what they used narcotics for. I wanted them to assume in case they gave me medications that would react with the medical marijuana. I hadn’t used it the afternoon before surgery, or the afternoon of, because of that reason. The only medicines they were anxious with were if I had used diabetic medicine or diuretics! When another nurse came in, I asked about the lack of problem over using medical marijuana. She said that they were gleeful when people told them medical marijuana wasn’t a sizable deal. If it helped people, especially older people, it was better than taking a lot of medications. I was gleeful that someone was genuinely listening to me plus telling me why no one seemed anxious. When she said that as far as she was anxious, it wasn’t as bad as using alcohol, plus only went a step below in using acetaminophen for headaches. She made me laugh when she said that, even if she was putting an IV in our arm.
