Comment:
I have hepatitis C, and have so many skeletal/spinal problems, so I take a lot of meds which make me nauseated. I was given a prescription of 10 mg Marinol and I personally found using medical marijuana actually is what helps me and is so much cheaper than the $1400 price for ONE month supply of Marinol.
