I actually have glaucoma, and the doctor said I was the youngest patient she ever diagnosed it in. Theres a multitude of states that I could legally grow/buy/smoke pot in.

So question is why am I still here?
My friend has glaucoma too :( She was diagnosed when she was....erm.. I believe it was around grade 10. So she was 15 at the time. They could have given her weed but we were innocent then and she turned it down..but has smoked pot since.
