It also appears that chronic pain was removed/not included as one of the conditions eligible under this bill. There are alot of us with chronic pain who could benefit because our medical insurance has stopped covering alot of the other treatment options or reduced them so much we don’t get adequate relief. We can barely get physical therapy anymore, and Medicare doesn’t cover massage or aquatic therapy on a regular basis because some of these things are considered “maintenance”. The traditional medical industry isn’t offering a cure for many of these diseases that cause permanent pain and disability, yet they allow us to suffer by cutting medications off their formularies that help us, restricting our range of treatment choices more and more year after year, and then they leave us stuck. There is plenty of evidence nation-wide that Marijuana is effective for treating pain, so I don’t know why this was not included in the final bill. I hope someone will put it back in!
