Todays politics are more like kindergarten class. Nothing really gets done and every kid has their own agenda. Temper Tantrums, name calling, fighting, bullying… It’s time for the adults, the working class and disabled, to make a change and show the politicians how adults operate!
I am a registered nurse, USMC veteran of Desert Storm and an insulin dependent diabetic with neuropathy, high blood pressure and PTSD. I am not ashamed of any of these health ailments. I embrace them. I am on 6 different medications, none of which, really work. The one NATURAL medication I can take, is ILLEGAL. Medical Marijuana, which is classified by the government in the same class as Heroin, LSD and PCP. Even Cocaine is a lesser class than Marijuana. I certainly would like the chance to use a natural medicine that has fewer side effects than the regimen I am on now, which causes muscle weakness, tremors and major gastro-intestinal issues. I had abdominal surgery just 3 months ago for complications related to diabetes. On one last note, the health ailments I do have, are related to chemical exposure while I was in the USMC.
My 7-year-old daughter, has severe Crohn’s disease. She is forced to take chemotherapy, which causes her hair to fall out, teeth to fall out, causes sterility, and increases her chances of cancer to 11%, which is quite high. The medication is approximately 18,000 dollars per dose. There are many natural oils derived from the Cannabis plant, that do not have the psychoactive component of THC, that PUT the life-long, auto-immune disease into remission without killing her!
Cannabis has been scientifically proven to treat inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, PTSD, depression, spinal injuries, anxiety and so many more conditions. I have many actual scientific articles in my archives on this blog!
I am asking everyone to PLEASE sign my petition at moveon.org forcing the government to listen to the majority of Americans. Close to 60% of all Americans support the medical use of Marijuana.
Please sign the petition. Not just for me, or for my daughter, but for all chronically ill and terminally ill patients that are forced to take dangerous pharmaceuticals. If you are a patient, then you understand how little control you have over what your doctor wants you to put in your body. Please help me change that and give Americans a choice. That’s what I fought for in the Marine Corps and that’s what I am asking you to fight for with me. Take a stand. We can make a change!
Please click on the petition icon. It only takes 2 seconds to make a difference.
