    Default Greetings from Canada, hey?

    Hello all,

    My name is Mart, I am 38 y.o. and I live in the province of Quebec.

    In 2006, after about 8 years of crazy suffering, I was diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cord tumor (not cancer). I've had an excision surgery and 85% was removed. I have a general good health, and there has been no sign of tumor growth since then. I have MRI's every 6 months to monitor the tumor and my spinal cord.

    I have never taken any prescription drugs, before or after the surgery, other than MJ and some ADVIL when MJ was not possible or available. My doctors are not aware that I use MJ as a pain killer, I just tell them that I am able to cope with the pain and that I use marijuana every once in while - they never asked any further.

    So I've been 'illegally' smoking (now switched to vaporization) for the past 15 years in order to relief my pain and live a normal life. I've always kept this to myself and nobody knows about this other than my wife. However, we now have a children so I want to go legal and avoid any possible legal problems if I ever get caught with drugs. I do not grow (and don't want because of my kid) so I think I would benefit from being MMAR licensed so I can have access to products other than from the street and protect myself from prosecution.

    I am currently gathering as much information as possible before my next appointment with my Neuro-oncologist. I've printed all the forms, read all the guides, signed up on this forum (and others) so I think I'm pretty ready

    Anybody with similar experiences, especially if you're from the same province, I'd like to hear from you!

    Cheers,
    M.

    P.S.: Je parle aussi français.

    Haha that's funny, I was actually reading your thread!

    So, to get that CTCC card, you still needed to go see your doctor first, right?

    So I guess I can simply provide my MRI's report from pre and post-surgery. Very interesting! Unfortunately, I don't think there are any dispensaries in my area (Ottawa/Gatineau).

    I thought I should put a little update about my story because today I got my MMAR forms signed off by a doctor!! I'm so happy!

    I've come a long way in a short period of time, but thanks to this site - and the people involved - I found the help I needed with today's results.

    Feels good.

    So much pressure and anxiety suddenly gone

    I don't think I will need to vape before going to bed tonight - I'll sleep tight with a grinning face.

    Congrats Vaporisateur..one stress over!

    If everything is in order with your MMAR application forms, you should receive your first exemption in 6 to 8 weeks from now.

    It's still a long period of time to wait compared to renewing a driver's license, but it's better than before - as some waited for as much as 6, 8, 12 months and more.

    I hope that you sent your application by Express Post or Priority Post and asked for a signature.

    That's the best way to do it.

    I was glad to help you out as well Mart!

    Bonne journée mon ami.

    Marc
