> I was born with cerebral palsy and discovered early on that cannabis
> mitigated the most painful physical and emotional manifestations of my
> disorder. I later learned that cannabis can help stutterers speak more
> clearly and that decades ago, doctors discovered the herb’s ability to
> alleviate muscle spasms, from which I also suffer.
>
> A year ago my children and I reluctantly fled our home in Kansas City and
> headed for the sanctuary of California’s Compassionate Use Act.
>
> Although 12 states have enacted medical cannabis laws that protect
> patients against state penalties, patients in the remaining states risk
> losing their careers, their freedom and even their families because they
> use a natural, nontoxic medicine to treat illness rather than expensive
> and addictive pharmaceutical drugs.
>
> Now that a bill to protect medical cannabis patients has been introduced
> in the General Assembly, Missouri has an opportunity to step up and do the
> right thing.
>
> Patients all over the state are anxiously awaiting the assignment of House
> Bill 1830 to the Health and Public Policy Committee. Please contact House
> Speaker Rod Jetton and ask him to open his heart to Missouri medical
> cannabis patients so that they may stop living in pain, fear and misery.
