The Pain of Paying – Seeking Cannabis on a Budget Because You Have No Choice

My heart sank reading a recent tweet about the crushing cost of medical cannabis for one patient with epilepsy – $560 a month, breaking their budget. The sheer injustice and helplessness of lacking access to affordable medicine that could ease their suffering upset me deeply. In an ideal world, no one should have to ration relief they need based on ability to pay. Yet pharmaceutical greed oppresses so many into needless pain, unable to afford monopolized pills and treatments.
