Wil Anderson is one of Australia’s funniest people.
The comedian and Gruen host has a stellar career at home and overseas, two successful podcasts (if you haven’t listened to Wilosophy yet – do) and an all-round funny dude.
But he is in almost constant pain.
He suffers from osteoarthritis in his hips. And uses medical marijuana to cope with the constant aching of joints.
On the latest episode of Meshel Laurie’s Nitty Gritty Committee, Wil spoke about how medicinal marijuana has helped him cope.
You can hear him, and some other very funny people, talk about that, here:
“A huge amount of our population doesn’t sleep properly because their pain wakes them up, or has to manage their pain by either drugs or something else throughout their life.”
“And because it’s chronic pain and it is ongoing, I think that it is one of those things that it’s almost like a hidden pain.” Wil told Meshel.
