Getting permission to smoke medical marijuana in California is amazingly easy. Of course, you must first suffer from a medical condition that may be alleviated by consuming cannabis. Like terminal cancer. Or writer’s cramp. Or stuttering. Those are a few of the 198 maladies of varying severity that can respond positively to a dose of medical pot, according to the California-based Marijuana Medicine Evaluation Centers. Take our quiz to see if pot can (supposedly) treat what ails you.

Advisory: This quiz should not be confused with legitimate medical advice. See your doctor to see if pot is really right for you.

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
