The insurance company will cover my opioid prescription, but not marijuana

When I was 18 years old, I was hit by a car when crossing the street. I had the walk sign and there were very few cars on the road. Halfway across the street, a car came out of nowhere and slammed into me. It was dusk at the time and the sun was just going down. The driver of the car kept driving after he knocked me to the ground. I couldn’t move either one of my legs. Another driver saw the accident and wrote down the license plate number of the driver that left the scene of the accident. That driver also called the police and an ambulance. When the ambulance arrived, they helped me on to a gurney. I went to the emergency room and they did a bunch of x-rays. Both of my legs were broken. I had three surgeries and a couple of pins and rods placed in my legs. After the accident, I had a ton of pain in my legs. The doctors prescribed pain medications. It didn’t take long for me to get hooked on the pain medications and after a while I was eating opioids every day like they were Tic Tacs. After a year, I ended up checking myself into rehab. That’s when I discovered medical marijuana. Medical marijuana absolutely helps the pain and the addiction to pills. Medical marijuana is legal in this state, but my insurance company won’t cover any of the cost. The insurance company will happily cover pain pills that make me addicted, but they won’t help me pay for medical marijuana at all.
