ROTONDA — One of the questions Bridget Robinson is asked repeatedly is if a person suffering from chronic pain will get high from taking a medical marijuana pill.

“A big misconception people have about medical marijuana is that they will get high, and they don’t want to be high,” she said. “Some will say they tried their friend’s medical marijuana and they got high. Well, that’s not what you are supposed to do. We all have receptors in our body. So what works for one person absolutely may not work or help you. You wouldn’t take your friend’s medication and expect it to work perfectly for you. It’s the same with medical marijuana. That’s why you see a doctor for your specific symptoms, and he prescribes the strain and combination that will work for your body’s receptors.”
