Ruth Brunn, 98, finally said yes to marijuana …


… “She pops a green pill filled with cannabis oil into her mouth with a sip of vitamin water. Then Ms. Brunn, who has neuropathy, settles back in her wheelchair and waits for the jabbing pain in her shoulders, arms and hands to ebb.

“I don’t feel high or stoned,” she said. “All I know is I feel better when I take this.”

That’s a cut from a New York Times feature story.

I’m 75 and I know exactly what she means and how she feels.

But for me, it’s been a long hard struggle.
