What makes you passionate about getting medical marijuana legal?

I am passionate about seeing medical marijuana become legal because I lost a dear childhood friend to cancer recently and I witnessed first hand how beneficial marijuana was in extending her life by giving her an appetite back. She had tried the marijuana pills and they just did not work the same as smoking real marijuana. I remember the joy we all felt when she said the words, "I'm hungry" and how we cried as we watched her relish a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter icing and then dig into her first real meal in months. So, I know marijuana is effective in bringing quality back to the lives of those that are suffering and in extending their lives.


An accomplished entrepreneur that has been organizing in my community for many years. A proud Democrat and passionate activist for liberal causes. I love organizing, and bringing people together to help others for a better future for our country.
