I understand that you may not have the energy for this, or the desire to do so. The Pennsylvania state legislature currently has bills in both houses that do not look like they will pass, the house bill is held up in committee. If you felt like contacting your state rep. and state senator with the reasons you would like to consider trying it as an alternative, and how many other things you have tried to get relief, it couldn't hurt. I've been meaning to do this but I'm still burned out from my social security appeal last week. The bills in question are House Bill 1393 and Senate Bill 1350. I've been meaning to research the issue further, so I will let you know if I am able to find out any more about it. I really really doubt it's going to go anywhere, but I figure it's worth a try. This is an article in my local paper about it http://citizensvoice.com/news/legislators-wary-of-medical-marijuana-1.804908 There were some more but this is pretty much the necessary facts.
