One reply on “A Very Valentine’s Day Cannabis Talk Time”

Thank you both for this :) I’m a 23 yr old woman with a chronic progressive disease. Discussions about sex and disability are really difficult to find, especially within friendly feminist spaces. The best resource I’ve found so far is the book “The Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability.” A lot of it is really basic information about sex, but presented in a way that takes disability into account (and is friendly for everyone regardless of your gender identity, sex, sexuality, and specific disability/illness/pain). It also includes a lot of personal stories from disabled people. There’s plenty of good info there so I couldn’t help but pass it along.

Personally I have a lot of pain and mobility issues and have been considering a medical marijuana card (with sex as one of my…primary motivations) This is definitely making me lean towards yes. I’m new to my state (vt) though and don’t have doctors or “connections.” Since this state doesn’t have dispensaries you have to find your own. And let me just say, I’ve never known a drug dealer to set up shop in an accessible area. -_-‘ oh well, a girl can dream.

Thank you for doing what you’re doing. :)
