Great topic...too bad we aren't the rulers of the world!
I was diagnosed in '78...on my doctor's (also a personal friend) and my, surgeons suggestion I started using pot. Aside from a couple experiments with NSAID's, it was the only "medication" for AS I used until I stopped all drugs a couple years ago. Imagine the money I saved, not to mention the added damage I would have had using the killer drugs the medicos prescribe.
I am sooo sick of being under the thumb of politics when my health is at stake!
