About Betty Jane
Welcome to the Mary Jane Chronicles! I'm Betty Jane, your guide to Maryland Medical marijuana.
December 1, 2017, I waited 3.5 hours in below freezing cold weather to be the first patient at Kannavis dispensary. I confess, I partook of the plant back in the day, but it had been 30 years since I had used cannabis, and it turns out I forgot everything. (You can read about that here.) Like so many of my fellow MM patients, medical marijuana was my last hope for managing pain without opioids or surgery. (You can read about my injury here.) When my doctor advised me to get a second opinion, I informed him that this would be a seventh opinion. (And YES, I've had it with doctors!)
Like so many of my fellow MM patients, I had NO IDEA where to begin. Thus began hours upon hours of Googling, research, watching Youtube videos, and trial and error. There was information all over the place, but unfortunately I couldn't find one place dedicated to all the aspects of Maryland medical marijuana. It was extremely frustrating.
I decided to take all of my Maryland-specific research and put it here. I continue to add things as I go along and learn. I'm not an expert; I'm a Maryland patient who's good at organizing, and I hope to help my fellow Marylanders who are suffering from injuries, illnesses, and conditions to get relief too. I'm still dealing with pain every day, but I can honestly say that medical marijuana has given me back my life.
I hope you find my site useful and most of all, I hope you find some relief. If you'd like to share your story (anonymously of course), I'd love to hear from you. I love my home state and hope to be a part of bringing relief to other Marylanders who desperately need it.
Thanks for visiting,
