Medical and Recreational Marijuana are Different

VANCOUVER — Diana Koch never wanted to numb her pain and anxiety with opioids. After seeing family members struggle with addiction, she felt pharmaceuticals were not an option.

Medical marijuana freed the 36-year-old from her troubling symptoms. But with recreational weed legalization looming, she worries about her portion of the market being swallowed up.

“People who are using it for medical purposes, they actually are suffering from something, from a condition that’s handicapping them in some way in their life,” she said, speaking from her home in Toronto.

“The recreational users are not,” she added. “There is a difference.”
