    Default Norco/ Marijuana. To all the doubters: For now, I will be having my cake and eating it to.

    For those of you who have been following my struggle to get a good doctor and a good scheduled medication to treat my pain while hopefully being able to use marijuana if I so choose on the side, I have, at least for now, accomplished my objective.
    I have found a legitimate doctor, who had already rx'ed me 10/325 norcos, some Somas as well, and ALSO has recently got into the business of writing Medical Marijuana prescriptions. So the result is this: I can have my Norco which is what I have been trying to acquire legally, and also, smoke my pot If I choose to do so.
    So yes, for all the doubters, at the moment I AM having my cake and eating it to, something many of you said could not/ would not happen.
    I am not writing this to be an ass, or to prove anyone wrong out of spite. I rather am simply amazed myself that I have found this situation, stumbled upon it as it were, and I am saying to others it is not impossible because it has happened for me, perhaps out of luck, maybe good research on my part, or whatever it may be, I am in a good situation as of now.
    I am just keeping you all updated, In a perfect world people SHOULD NOT have to be piss tested or have to choose between natural remedies such as pot and Scheduled medications such as Hydrocodone or Percocet, etc. I am very happy I have came this far, also happy to know there are some doctors out there who recognize the benefits of Marijuana for pain or at the least do not remove you from their practice for smoking a measly joint here and there. Thanks all for your continued input. - Grapey

    Yea I don't really smoke anymore. When I was taking painkillers if I smoked I would only take 70% of the usual dose. It definitely helped something, helped me eat too.

    you are my hero!

    no seriously.... not joking. if i could get med MJ i would cut my oxycodone intake (30mg irs) from around 8 - 10 a day to a good 4-5!

    it is the perfect combo for me. my xanax intake would disappear as well!

    you are one lucky soul!

    I've been telling people to try this combination for a while on Pr. I live in Oregon and have a medical card and have some of the best Medical marijuana here. You can literally cut ur dose by half and get the same euphoria and pain relief. Except be careful and make sure you try a lower dose when first trying. You will "nod" out very very quick if mixed with a strong pain killer.I think the route of administration will have a lot to do with it. Also like stated above you can eat all day.

    @ akl63
    @ A MAC USER
    @ Fanbased
    thanks for all your responses.

    @akl63 Yeah I agree when you do smoke pot and manage to enjoy it on some level you want LESS narcotics, not more. It really does help some pain issues and overall, for me at least, it makes me rethink my decisions to dose higher medication unless I absolutely need it. I really do think it helps you to take less pain meds, meds in general, no doubt. My experiences have been similar to yourself.

    @A MAC USER Thanks for your kind comment. Basically what I said above to akl63 I would say to you. It does seem to help. In terms of the Xanax, a med I love too much and therefore I do not often seek or take too much, I trust your belief it would help in that area. But as you know MJ can cause some anxiety and it certainly, in my opinion, would not help you very much going cold turkey from a benzo. But as I said above it is definitely helpful in allowing you to take less and be content with that.

    @Fanbased Thanks so much. I did receive allot of grief about my desire to be able to consume MMJ and get my proper pain treatment. I have been worried about this for some time, having to drop one and keep the other conceivably. I am very happy as well. Thanks for your kind words. - grapey

    The combination of marijuana and an opiate pain killer has always been my best defense against pain. And like you said @Rhino236, if you dose right, you can kill most pain.

    agreed about the ALP.... no cold turkey with MJ... BUT, when i do smoke MJ, i am able to fall asleep with 2 milligrams instead of 6!

    give it a good 4-5 months and a taper would be simple! (xanax i mean)

    Problem is i live in FLA and get a LARGE script of 30mg oxycodone & dilaudid (amongst other things).

    in the past the doc would ignore a fail for MJ on a piss test, wasnt a big deal to him. now that the DEA is coming down like the wrath of god on docs & pharms, 1 fail for MJ and you are booted. sad, sad, sad...

  10. Default Medical Marijuana Gone?

    I posted this a few minutes ago in the Intro thread. Did not notice where I was!
    The news is out that our Progressive President has turned Holder (AG) loose to close pot dispenseraries, growers, landlords, with large fines, and property seizures. Great economic move.
    Obama has been insulting his base, now we have Nixon to lead us from temptation.

    Yeah I think we can all pretty much agree, those without our heads in the sand, that Obama has been a disaster at this point. Glad to see you all are independent thinkers and independently well educated...
    Now back to the original purpose of this thread, please. Thanks for all comments though any and all are welcome. [I] guess the point is Marijauan works well with Opiate based pain meds and allows you to take less if anything, not more. - Grapey

    @RealGrapey Life must be good?hah i envy you with medical marijuana privileges!! THats great that you can get everything you need from the same doc, its good to hear more doctors are adapting to using medical marijuana. It really should be used and offered to more patients, it has such good results w.o. the millions of side effects that come with so many medications.
    Hey just a heads up, when i was taking taking marijuana with my prescription opiates i gained a bunch of weight, i know it sounds silly but just thought i would share that, i gained a ton of weight and my whole life i could never gain a pound until i had the combination of marijuana with opiates.

    Cheers, enjoy your medication

    WOW!! I LOVE Cake!! LOL! Seriously your very lucky you live where you can get all you need for pain relief.. Where I live I cant even get my local doc to prescribe me the Norco 7.5/325 I was taking for 5+ years anymore. I was told I would have to drive 70+ miles to go to a pain managment clinic from now on.... so therefore I am here and ordering from recommendations and LOTS of research on this forum... well I know I got sidetracked but just wanted to add my CONGRATS!!

    Right on, Grapey. That's great; I'm happy for you.
    And, screw the administration for coming down on MMJ. Lots of us who considered ourselves to be Deadheads for Obama are majorly pissed. He courted the classic rock vote big-time; said good things about MMJ -- and now is being a putz. Urgh.
    Rant over.

    Really? I am so disappointed. I live in a med mj state, but not interested in getting a card and doubt my pcp who scripts my hydro would be thrilled.

    Mj makes me eat too and I don't need to eat any more than I already do. Doesn't really help w/my pain.

    Congrats to the OP who got one doc to script all. I just don't get why mj has not been wholly embraced as a med. A lot of meds come from nature.

    Biggest problem for across the board decriminalization is that it is free. The insurance companies would also not like people driving under the influence. The alcohol companies would be threatened. Many reasons, but in the end it will always be around.

    In my experience, smoking marijuana and driving makes you MORE cautious, not less. Perhaps due to the paranoia, the LAST thing someone on pot driving wants to do is get in an accident or drive recklessly. I cant say this about ANY other med that has any amount of euphoric effect. Everything else, it seems, puts me more at risk while driving. - Grapey
