Consumption of Medical Cannabis – By Michael Blais, CD

I am fortunate. As a disabled Canadian veteran, the Government of Canada supports the expense of my medical cannabis prescription which I obtained through the help of the doctors, pain specialists, and support staff at Apollo Cannabis Clinics.

Author: Mark  Sleep. My best friend and enemy at the same time. Around 16 years old, I developed a habit of staying up late where I could do what I wanted without interruption, whether it was making music, playing video games, or reading books. Once University came around, I would purposefully look to schedule all of my classes in the afternoon, knowing I had become a nighthawk.
