Osteogenesis Imperfecta patient Charlie, turns to medical marijuana
Transcript to follow:
My name is Charlie Burns. I have been a medical marijuana patient for about a year now. I was diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which is basically Latin for brittle bones. I have personally broken my legs 85 times now and have had about 25 different reconstructive surgeries. I always have pain in my joints and long bones in my legs and lower back. I’ve been on pretty much every painkiller and muscle relaxant that you can throw out there. I’ve been on Oxicodone, Oxicontin, Percocet, Valium, Dilaudid, Morphine, if it’s out there, I’ve tried it. They always make you feel really messed up though, real fuzzy in the head, can’t think clearly, I couldn’t function at work properly, so I just found that medical marijuana was a way better choice for me personally.
