Reasons for anonymity of interviews


One of the participan­ts explained that although they have a strong opinion about the use of medical marijuana to treat chronic pain, they preferred to not have their name on a newspaper. “Many people have blinkers on and do not wish to see the reality of using marijuana for medical use, but only see drugs as harmful.”

The interviewe­es said that the stigma of chronic pain and the use of medical marijuana does affect their daily lives. “This is something which doesn’t just happen to me, but many others are facing, and that this medicine is helping us function in our daily lives.”
