    here's a topical DIY recipe i made and am still tweaking. i also suffer from arthritis and tennis elbow. give it a shot. i have shared with several people and they like it. smells like peppermint, camphor and menthol. gonna use ISO hash to make it next time instead of flowers. trying to up the potency as well. it helps me.

    Fair enough, but having lists of doctors that are willing to perscribe it for payment says something to me. How did you know weed was gonna fix or treat your illness? Lucky guess or did you have to try a buffet of perscription meds to find it?

    When most people get sick their first concern shouldn't be is this doctor more likely to perscribe weed than another.

    My post was about people expecting a discount or acting like the people growing or supplying are the scourge of the earth because it's "medicine" now. It's a service like anything else whether the end user is med,rec,or black market.

    Instead of people crying, pissing,and moaning "poor me poor me" about the price and expecting growers to absorb the cost grow it yourself or try getting insurance companies to pay for it like any other medical issue. I've never seen any threads discussing that topic, how about you? Get employers to accept it as a legit med so patients can get and hold decent paying jobs without fear of drug testing and being fired for it. I think if someone can post a thousand posts a month on the internet they can get a job to pay for their own shit.

    If you're in contact with all these terminally ill people you must live in a nursing home or Chernobyl and should probably move.

    The only people that ever complained to me about price were rec users and dealers. And it’s because of cash croppers and rec stores we have a discount price war now.

    Many Medical caregivers have always helped needy sick people. It’s the dispensaries ripping off the sick.

    Sounds like Growers are not ready to compete in the new market to me in many complaint posts.

    I don't deal with anything medical, never have. My comments have more to do with the mindset of people. If you grow and sell it to sick people for profit, your're an asshole who should be burned at the stake. Having a competitive market is good it keeps prices fair. Why is trying to get the best price for your weed any different than any other business medical or not?
    Unfortunately people are greedy and will always want more for less. People wanted it legal to possess, use, go to a shop pick their strains like a buffet, buy the seeds they want, grow .trade it, have it delivered and are still getting fucked somehow.

    They should regulate it like every other medication. Grow it in a clean room or a lab somewhere. Have every strain taste the same (who cares about taste if your dying) No more home grows or little guys make it all under strict federal regulation. Every product used to grow would need to be cleared by the FDA. Products are pulled of store shelves all the time because there's shit contained in them thats not on the label, can't have that in medicine people are using.
    Then you'll have the same people pissing and moaning about bland cookie cutter bullshit. People wanted it decriminalized and got, wanted it medicinal and got it, wanted recreational and got it, now they want it free. Selfish cocksuckers can't be grateful that they have a choice when most don't. If you can sleep at night without having your heart stop if your dog barks, what's that worth?

    Best bet for us small guys is legal medical marijuana and small cottage licenses..... growing for “friend that are sick “ just an off the cuff opinion. Maybe if each state goes legal and sale from growers to dispensary is totally kept “ in state” it could create markets that the little guy legal or gorilla could make a profit. Just my 2cents in the early morning

    The only problem I see with this is that when states really start to regulate the medical side of cannabis, we could see a swing towards far more stringent controls and testing by health agencies, some of which are needed because we are talking about medicine to treat sick people and because where there's money to be made, there's always greedy people who will cheat or cut corners, using unsafe pesticides and/or carcinogenic growth-enhancing additives. etc.

    But of course these will also favor bigger operations and corporate entities who can out-compete the small guys - while it may not be the best analogy, still you don't see a lot of mom-and-pop pharmaceutical companies around, and that's probably where this will end up as well, though that may be some time from now (or within the decade, who knows).

    I don't mean to sound so pessimistic, lol, but IF marijuana becomes rec legal across the majority of states (say 30 or more) in the next 10-12 years, that will be great for medical users, for smokers and Big Canna (pot's version of Big Pharma, lol), just us small growers will wind up with the short end of the stick.
    I find myself torn between rooting for legal weed and hoping conservatives manage to block recreational for the next 20-30 years so I can save up enough to pay for my nursing home costs (so my kids won't have too :cry:).

    Good smoke could end up being like small batch bourbon. Regulated small growers could find a niche, medically or recreationally.... like a following and still have the blessing of the state because they are being ran in a safe manner

    If a person wants to acquire a license and grow medical cannabis for profit I see nothing wrong with it. Does it make him a piece of shit, no. That’s my opinion. I think asking a set price to a fella for an herb that you or someone propagated is well within reason. If someone has a chronic illness and a particular strain can ease the grief...... fuck by all means grow it and give it away ! Just my 2 cents

    By this time next year I think you'd be lucky to get a grand/lb for even the finest indoor...here in Canada anyways. Not much profit after rent and power.

    @farmerfischer If you got something to say don't go to my page like a little kid. Say it where everyone can see it. Or just block me. Child, meanwhile I'm gonna talk down to people for growing indoor because no one wants to buy my shitty ass outdoor with bugs and mold spores.
