I am an 18 year old Crohn's patient, throughout my life i was told i was either lactose intolerant or suffered from an "anxiety problem" when I was about 6. I wasn't diagnosed with Crohns until I was in my freshman year of highschool. In my sophmore year i started smoking Cannabis not knowing it would help me. over a couple of months I started realizing I hadn't had any flare ups or an abnormal amount of bowel movements in the day, I started doing research and found out it was a legitimate treatment for Crohns but not in my state. I find it ridiculous that I can get prosecuted for something that helps me stay healthy. there is a new bill in Idaho that is pushing for legalization of Medicinal and if you are in Idaho reading this please when the time comes do your part.
