for pain releif and an over all better outlook and feeling try marijuana. I was taking 60 vicoden a month with little relief after a few years, I was concerned with it not really being liver friendly with the NSAIDS. Some one told me that marijuana works for pain relief. I looked into it and decided to try marijuana, I have now been vicodene free for over a year. I still have pain but I deal with it better, I do not have the anger or the nodding off that I use to get with the vicoden. I can actually go to a movie and not fall asleep as would when I was on the pain meds. Only issue is that the goernment in the state I live in continues to make it illegalView Thread
