Better With Age: How Cannabis Improves Quality Of Life
https://herb.co/news/health/better-a...ulDoBK8EacIEuA

Marijuana is illegal in my state and I'm very law abiding, but I am considering a move now that my son has finished law school and is working. Wonder if having legal access is worth moving. I have degenerative osteoarthritis and a host of other ailments.

That comes down to your ability to source the amount you need without risk.
An ounce or two per year? Even at black market prices that isn't enough $$ to justify a move.

Once you have that stock on hand there's almost no additional risk to using it.
(Well, assuming you don't do that stupidly)

If I were you I would take a vacation in Colorado for a week to try out our legal, local cannabis.

If it helps you might then plan a move.

A lot of states have passed medical marijuana laws, but not sure the OP lives in one. I'm sure recreational will eventually be legal in many more states. Having small quantities is sometimes overlooked, but I get the OP's not wanting to break the law, plus it could be kind of icky to find if it's illegal.

Some friends came back from Colorado with edibles. Definitely the way to go. No fuss, no muss. If I were to partake regularly again, this would be my option.

One of my ailments is breathing problems. I think the thin air and cold of Colorado are counterindicated.

NuWu Cannabis Marketplace, just north of downtown, is billed as the stateís largest dispensary, and itís owned by the Las Vegas Paiute tribe. They accept online orders to be picked up in person, and have a 24-hour-a-day drive-through. It sells everything youíd expect from a full-service shop, plus extras like THC-laced dog treats. Itís also home to the occasional Native American art fair, with crafts made by local tribes.

I am 70 years old and have been using cannabis daily for three years. (It's legal here.) My quality of life has improved noticeably. I sleep better, have more energy and less anxiety. I even lost weight, believe it or not. Cannabis is known for causing "munchies," but I find that with regular use this hasn't been a problem at all. Maybe this is because cannabis can help regulate your blood sugar level. I don't have the cravings for sugar that I used to have. My 78-year-old husband has never used cannabis and is not a good candidate for it due to heart issues (THC can cause rapid heartbeat). Instead he uses CBD oil for his knee and hip pain, and he says it does help.
