Just a side note to share about Section 8 housing vouchers:
About 12 years ago I applied for Section 8, and after a waiting period I was accepted and getting set up to receive it. I went to a meeting with others who were being accepted to go over the rules. Around that time I had also recently legally become a Medical Marijuana patient.
They don’t allow that. When the meeting was over, they took my Section 8 voucher away from me and I was absolutely crushed. I left there balling my eyes out and devastated.
Instead of finally getting the much needed housing assistance and living independently, they took it right away from me and I had to move into a family members basement.
I don’t know if any of that has changed since then, or if it varies by each state, but at that time:
*You can’t be a legal Medical Marijuana patient and receive Section 8 housing assistance.
