High There is where you need to go to find a local support group for those using medical marijuana. These groups can offer a shoulder when you struggle with knowing you have medical issues, fill the void of when no one in your circle understands the issues or the fact that you use medical marijuana instead of or as a partner with any “traditional” medications or can just give you a safe place where you feel accepted and among like-minded folk. You can find groups specific to your illness, or reach out to a general purpose support group.
