Marijuana Legalization Topic Of Local Forum

If you haven’t made up your mind about whether recreational marijuana use should be legalized in California, an education forum is happening this evening in Grass Valley about Proposition 64, which is on the November ballot.

Hi All, I just want to ask if anyone ever tried using medical cannabis as an alternative meds? I have read many articles about medical marijuana and how it can help you in terms of chronic pain, bone injuries, eating disorder/anorexia, anxiety disorders and panic attacks, inflammation, even cancer and a lot more. Cbd and thc are also new to me and I don't even smoke. If this is true I cant find any solid conclusive evidence that speaks to its efficacy. Any personal experience or testimonial would be highly appreciated. Thanks
