  1. Hello OpenGrowers! My name is Matt and I'm from Rhode Island in the USA. I am a medical patient due to injuries sustained while in Afghanistan with the Army. My whole lower back and hips are destroyed and I experience incredible nerve pain in my legs due to the damage above them. The Veterans Administration also diagnosed me with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which is arguably more disabling than my physical wounds. I am a legal medical marijuana (I prefer cannabis) patient in Rhode Island and I grow quite a few different strains not only for myself but for others at low or no cost depending on their situation. I remain legal at all times and do not interact (in regards to cannabis) with anyone who is not authorized to use cannabis no matter how badly they "need it". This last part of my situation really presents a problem, there are sick people (cancer, ms, etc) that didn't get sick through any fault of their own, and their doctors have no problem throwing hands full of narcotics at them, but refuse to sign off on palliative cannabis. It's a big problem here, especially when you see big pharmaceutical reps buying these doctors and their employees lunches that run in the hundreds of dollars, sometimes more than once a week. And all so they are influenced to continue prescribing and using those meds. It is a terrible thing, the current situation in the US with the level of influence that pharma companies exert over doctors, policy makers and even patients. The Veterans Administration has had me on every antidepressant antipsychotic and benzodiazepine you have ever heard of, and some that aren't even approved yet! Even when I decided that I didn't want to take their poison anymore I COULD NOT break the hold that these drugs had on me! With the help of some Simpson oil I was able to break free from the last mental cold-cock and level myself out with nothing but all natural, organic cannabis that I grow myself. Unfortunately the physical injuries still need to be quieted sometime and I have not found a strain potent enough to replace ALL of my painkillers. If you read my whole intro I thank you. If not, you're not reading this, so no big deal. All compliments and questions are welcome, it's easy to talk to me if you're not in person. I'm glad to be here at OpenGrow as the last community I was involved with was shuttered a number of years ago. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for all the passion, love, and intelligence that goes into each and every one of our grows, it truly is a labor of love. Matt
