Sorry for your loss. Money, time dealing with BS, the insult and I could go on but I won't.... I feel for you.
I am in chronic pain due to US Army service connected problems. Been living in the UK for 30 years. I am green with envy for all those people in the
US who are able to legal smoke it just to enjoy it as well as the States that are not there yet but allow medical use of Medical MJ....
I am on morphine 40 mg a day and allowed to take more when like now in the winter pain is sever! I hate the stuff. I smoked in the service carried
duties that demand a Top Secret clearance (thank God there were no tests in the early 70's) but from the age of 20 I lived and worked in an able
bodied world passing myself off as one. MJ was the key, went to Uni, earned a degree, received a New York Corp outside sales position in Northern
Calif. Company car and expense acct. All smoking MJ. Moved here and went on to Codeine for fear of what happened to you.
I was forced into retirement by my GP who has been useless since moving here 10 years ago. Stepped up to MST Morphine. I would kill to trade my hard
drugs for a soft one. I know I could manage on smoke alone and have a more happy life etc.
Ask worthless GP when Medical MJ may be the norm since Berkeley now issues Medical MJ FREE to pain people who cannot afford it. He said this will
never happen because of the UK drug companies tight grip in kick backs and owned politicians.
Thank you for your story because I wondered what the penalty would be for simple possession. Now I know. I cannot believe that you were charged a
victim fee. IMHO you were the victim by this system.
Anyone says you broke a law I would say that they are bloody lucky cause I am sure they are consuming liqueur at some point and that was illegal. My
daddy serve time for running shine during the prohibition which this is just a modern day affair. If I were to legalize a drug alcohol would not be
on the list.....
