    It’s official, I am not crazy! I was a member of this board about 5 years ago when I had a bout of optical neuritis and a ton of really weird things going on.

  • Cannabis for MS

    I don't have any answers for Tyler, but his post brings up another question. Since medical cannabis was recently passed in our state, I need to learn something from others. What experience have you had with using it to treat MS? What symptoms is it helpful for, or is it wishful thinking?
