I have watched so many people suffer from Cancer, Chemo & Radiation Such as my maternal grandfather, my Aunt, numerous friends and myself.  These people were/are physically unable to hold down any food at all on a regular basis while undergoing Chemo treatments.  Then there are seizures equally suffered by children and adults on a daily basis.  There has been tremendous success in slowing the seizures down to very few or none at all.  ADD, ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, Glaucoma, AIDS, ALS, Crohns Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Asthma, Nausea, Vomiting, Migraines, 

I myself, suffer from Migraines about 5 days a week on a regular basis, going on 6 years now.  I also suffer from chronic pain due to 5 automobile accidents I was in (none were my fault,) Scoliosis, knee, extreme hip joint pain, ankle and my left foot which was fractured, all from a wreck.  

Then there is my constant Nausea and or Vomiting which I endure usually at least 3 times a week, for the past 6 years.  I used to be on anti-Nausea meds but my doctor took me off of them and now I am back to suffering from it all like before the meds.  

Now for some reason there are No Diagnosis’s written down in any of my medical records, and you have to have the diagnosis to apply for the $200.00 Dr. appointment to get the referral, then send the state another $50.00 for your medicinal card.

There are thousands of citizens in this state that could benefit from the use of Marijuana , whether it be THC or CBD, and because of this We the citizens of the state of Arkansas voted for medicinal Marijuana over 2 years ago and here we sit no closer to the benefits we could have from medical Marijuana than the day we voted it in.  I have a few of the limited ailments that are allowed to receive Medical Marijuana and I don’t think this is right.  

 Since it has taken Arkansas so long to do anything at all about growers, licenses, and dispensaries, I feel it is only right to start a petition to legalize Recreational Marijuana in Arkansas at this time.  Then All the citizens that do not have the limited ailments on Arkansas’ must have list in order to receive a medical card to buy and use, this petition would allow all adults the right to purchase without having to spend the $200.00 dr fee, or go through any of the other issues that keep us from being able to take for healing and medicinal reasons.

Not only is this good for our citizens it’s is very good for our economy.  The other states with Recreational Marijuana have billions of dollars in revenue annually and of course it is taxed.  It also has approximately 200,000 people currently employed through the Cannabis industry, also good for our economy.  

      Arkansas is also way up there for opioid use and overdoses as well as deaths.  Get rid of the opioids and let’s use a natural growing plant that was here on earth growing when we all got here.  Many Indian tribes are allowed to have Cannabis on their reservations.

 So let’s all pull together for the greater cause of alleviating pain, nausea, seizures, Parkinson’s disease to name only a few.  

     Please follow me in bringing this petition to the attention of any and all that suffer from any of the above and Cancer, Glaucoma, ADD, ADHD, Etc...  Share this with your friends, family, doctors, co-workers, neighbors and anyone else that can benefit from its use. 

     This plant was growing here on Earth when we were all born into this world so why can’t it be used as we would any other plant such as aloe or spices like Ginger.  As long as it is benefiting those who need it and being used responsibly Arkansas should legalize it as many other states have already done including California, Washington D.C., Washington state and Colorado to name only a few.  

     Stand with me a mother of three adult children and six grandchildren and sign this petition to get Recreational Marijuana legal in the state of Arkansas.
