(MYFOX NATIONAL) - Irvin Rosenfeld, a 56-year-old stockbroker from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. will smoke his 115,000th marijuana cigarette Friday, a possible world record, and he can thank the U.S. government for his supply.

"Yep, provided by Uncle Sam," Rosenfeld told NBCMiami.com. "They grow it for me, I find that quite ironic."

Since 1982, Rosenfeld has been a patient in the Federal Drug Administration's Investigational New Drug Program.

He suffers from a rare bone disorder called multiple congenital cartilaginous exostoses. To alleviate the pain associated with the disorder he was prescribed marijuana.

The marijuana is grown on a farm on the campus of the University of Mississippi and is delivered to a pharmacy where Rosenfeld picks up a tin of 300 federally grown and rolled cigarettes that have been sent for him.

He said he smokes between 10 and 12 marijuana joints per day.

"The first thing I do every morning is smoke two joints as I watch my business shows," Rosenfeld said. "Then another on my drive to work."

According to Fortune magazine Rosenfeld is one of four people in the United States whom the federal government supplies with medical marijuana.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall if he got stopped by a taser-weilding pig...

I don't recall the number but there are either 100 or 300 people in the US that are on the same program. They've been getting them for years and will do so until they die.
Since he has to smoke 2 in the morning, I wonder how good they really are or maybe he just has a huge tolerance after all this time of steady puffing.

He said he doesnt even feel like he gets high anymore. He carries a special ID in case any cops stop him or anything. He also takes smoke breaks at work too...lucky guy. There was a pretty good documentary called
In Pot We Trust that he was featured in.
