Many of us on this blog have been advocates for years in favor of medical marijuana legalization. Frankly, as I have expressed before, I fail to understand the logic, let alone the humanity, that would sustain opposition to such drugs for people who are suffering. This woman however made a video that is simply remarkable. It shows the improvement, particularly in speech, that she experiences after using medical marijuana for her cerebal palsy.
I realize that government officials at the DEA and other agencies still contest the value of medical marijuana for such conditions. I believe we need to err on the side of these patients who report that it does help. I simply cannot imagine telling a woman like this that she cannot use such drugs to lessen her pain and desperation.
