Charles recalls, "I was hesitant about trying marijuana, worried about how or where I would get it, but I was desperate for relief. I couldn’t stand the pain. I wanted to be the husband and father my wife and three girls deserve. It worked. As a result of the relief medical marijuana provides me, I can do things that a normal 37 year-old can do, like cook dinner for my wife and give my three-year old a piggyback ride."
