MEDICAL  cannabis is a revolution of the new age. PTSD,MS,CANCER,GLAUCOMA,SPINAL CORD DAMAGE,SEIZURES, ECT.... All of these doctor reviewed conditions need help. I myself am a spinal cord damaged, body left for crap survivor. I do not believe in recreational at this moment, due to medical being my main focus. 

I have gone around, multiple towns of wyoming, gathering as much information as possible. 70% of the communities I have spoken with have felt the same need and desire that medical marijuanna AND CBD oil can offer. Stiff joints, muscle spasms, bruised body parts, all can be helped with CBD oils. So many states are jumping on board with MC (medical cannabis). Why keep a healing oppurtunity from Citizens? The process of debate weather you are qualified SHOULD be hard. So not anyone can just go get it. All of the X-Rays, CTs, EKG's, Blood tests, and more that we as people go through could and very well be the first steps into this exciting Era. 

 

CRIME RATES:

I'm no law enforcement, judge, or lawyer, but if you look at wyoming's crime rate and look more into depth, MOST of the crimes adjourn are from cannabis.  But why is it factored in the legal system here in wyoming, as the biggest issue abroad. Chief of the Sherrif's Department here in BigHornCounty, Kenneth Blackburn, has publicly stated METH & PILLS are the biggest problem in our county, and among MOST in  wyoming..

My story included. I was 17 when I moved here to Wyoming. (Now 24). I was new, young, loud, and was not using THC in the form matter that I'm reaching out for as of now. Long story short, I was told I was a drug addict, I was told I will not amount to anything as long as that "controlled substance" was flushing through my system. YES, that comimg from the probation officers of our great Bighorn County probation/and correctional officers. 

I was 17. Seventeen and being told these things? I admitted to smoking a bowl. I am no liar, I respect our law enforcement, but to an extent. I was then placed in drug court, for almost 2 years. A kid came about, young..15 I believe, for meth. My heart sunk in. I became very close with this kid, because I believe in a thing called "A helping hand". I helped him recover, stay sober, and most importantly I told him I was here. No matter what. Few months later he is out. His lawyer got him off scotch free..That is after his 3rd attempt for rehabilitation ordered from our judicianal court,and he was a meth addict. As here I am... 2 years in, for admitting to smoking a bowl of cannabis. Are you seeing the problem yet? Yes I know I did an illegal act. I also got very well punished for it. But meth. Someone who gets caught with METH gets slid onto the backburner?... HELP!

MY STORY: Novemeber 16, 2017. I was in a very bad car accident. I was driving home between Lovell and Byron, wyoming around approximately 9:30ish at night. 65 mph, ready for home! That was not the case. A black cow decided she wanted to be on the highway. I was in a small 4 door chevy. Totalled the car. I hit her, she  ame ontop of the vehicle, pinning me in my seat, I veered left off a cliff, side swiped Hessenthawler's farming equipment, and went head on with a tree. All while being 27 weeks pregnant. No seat belt, air bags did not deploy. I fractured my C1(hardest bone to fracture in your spine), broke C5-C7,  broke my bone in my upper top jaw (under my nose), broke my nose, broke 3 bones in my left hand, lost ALL mobility on my left side of my body. Dr. Rassioano in Billings,MT stated I was 2-3 MM from being a parapalegic. I just had a second opinion with Dr. Poffenarger in Cody, WY. Nothing more my body can do. Im averaged out at a 60% on body functioning. By the same time of next year if I am not at an 80%, I will never have my body back close to normal again. I was of course prescribed PILLS for my muscle spasms. To clarify spasms... My left hand cringes and molds into a crippling affect. Like a claw of some sort. A d it just freezes there. Everytime I cough, sneeze, hiccup, get chills, and even stretch, my left leg will extend during all of these situations and I cannot move until my body decides to relax my muscles and stop the spasms. (This is where CBD oil would play into affect). I was diagnosed with foot drop, weakness of muscle on my left side, nerve damage, and of course, the obvious, spinal cord damage. I cannot hunt, ride horses, play sports with my children, and much, much more. Stiffness of the entire body, sharp shoooting pain, sitting a certain way, laying a certain way, even walking plays a huge factor in my day to day life style. I do believe medical cannabis a d CBD oil can and will help. 

There are so many more stories I have heard and experienced with others, and to listen on how the CBD oil they get from CA or CO helps is remarkable. I have friends, (medical friends) in CO, WA, CA. .  ALL doctors or nurses, who agree 100% on the affect THC, Cannabinoids, and CBD oils have to offer. Reach out, speak out, we all have our heart wrenching story. Most of us are on the same page. So PLEASE, reach out! Educate and release. Thank you for taking the time to read my point of interest on this topic. God bless!
