Why medical marijuana use could grow in Vermont

A push for legal pot went up in smoke, but medical marijuana use could spread like a weed in Vermont.

Changes to the state’s medical marijuana law received overwhelming support in both chambers. Along with technical alterations, the bill adds a new qualifying condition on what led to de facto legalization in other states.

Drawn by the Green Mountains, Vermont’s lifestyle and better access to his preferred medicine, Adam Worch moved his family to Montpelier in January.

“My wife was like, why don’t we move to Vermont? We already love visiting, and they have medical marijuana, you’ve got the condition for it,” said Worch.

The Army veteran began a battle with multiple sclerosis in 2004, a disease that attacks nerve fibers in the central nervous system and has no cure.

He says about a year ago he first tried marijuana in a search for relief from his excruciating pain. Worch says pot provided better results than a cocktail of powerful painkillers and weaned himself off narcotics six months later.

“Everything’s better about marijuana,” said Worch.

Worch says he medicates just before bed every 24 to 48 hours, but never imagined he would be forced to rely on the black market rather than Vermont’s medical marijuana dispensaries.
