I'm 42 YO guy with terminal liver disease. I've always enjoyed a taste of marijuana, but had to be extra careful because of working in healthcare. Since I've been diagnosed with liver disease, I can't really take any prescription medications, which is probably for the best. I have found that using marijuana as a medication, rather than as a recreational product really does work better than the meds I have been taking at the advice of my doctors for the last 10 yrs. I cannot afford street prices for substandard products. I can't take the medications the Pharma Companies tell the Drs to give me. So it is grow or die for me. Have plenty of experience growing "gardens" outside, and have grown a few buds outside over the years, but only as a gardener. I have dove too far into the idea of trying to provide for myself I think. But learning every day!
