Medical Cannabis Refugees Invite Obama to A-Day-In-The-Life


 photo obamafamily.jpg


Last month the Obama Administration announced that the President will be doing a series of "A-Day-In-The-Life" visits with average Americans throughout the country.

The Parents Coalition to Reschedule Medical Cannabis has begun a letter writing campaign to The President on behalf of families seeking medical cannabis treatments for sick children or adults. Those who have had to move from home states for treatment elsewhere or those living in prohibitive states and unable to move are invited to submit their stories to The Coalition in WORD format at nationalPCRMC@gmail.com. The letters will be bundled and submitted to the White House after July 7th.

The campaign is being coordinated by Kristi Baggarly, a lead Coalition organizer from Georgia.

"I found out about President Obama's tour through the White House email updates", said Baggarly. "This email caught my eye for some reason and, while I think the campaign is driven by his desire to learn more about the economic hardships of Americans, I thought that he should also hear about the struggle of families who are literally fighting for their children's lives.  This fight often leads to the financial distress that many Americans experience, and the economic downturn certainly has not helped. I realize that this may not be something that is on his radar, but I believe in the power of our team and that we can help bring some awareness to our national leaders.  We all have done what many considered the impossible at the state level, and there is no doubt in my mind that working together, we can bring this kind of change across the country!"

Annie Galloway moved her family from Vermont to Colorado so her epileptic daughter could obtain Charlotte's Web, a non-psychoactive cannabis/hemp oil high in cannabidiol, to treat her seizures. From Galloway's letter:

"I chose to leave our family, friends, my work and her Care Team to see if this treatment would offer her a better life.  She has suffered with Intractable Epilepsy for almost 5 years.  Since being here we have met a wonderful group of families who are like ours, we have joined together to support one another as we try this new life changing therapy.  I hope that you will visit our home so that you can learn more about what it is like to live with such a serious medical condition and what it is like to be trying to give my daughter a better chance at life with the controversial treatment of Cannabis.".

Thousands of American families live this reality right now. If yours is one of them The President needs to hear your story. To find out more visit The Coalition's event page from this effort here.

Editor's Note:
The Parents Coalition to Reschedule Medical Cannabis recently expanded its presence from being a southern regional group to a collection of national advocates. Their Facebook page is still listed under their former name, Southeast Coalition for Medical Cannabis Research, but that will soon change.

  3. Wow that is wonderful! I am glad the nation is becoming more of thinking outside of the box with cannabis. Heck not even just that with smoking. They have came up with the electronic cigarette's and e-juice. It is just blows my mind that you can buy e-liquid online!

  5. Something does need to be done about it for sure. It is sad families having to relocate in the same country to medicate themselves! What is wrong with the country. Wake up Mr The President! I am fortunate that tobacco e-liquid is legal in all states. It just time before states mess that up...

  9. Cannabis has been known for thousands of years for all it's medicinal benefits and more. The reason it is illegal is offensive to say the least. Good job including this valuable herb on your blog. I am an activist for medicinal Cannabis and advertise my activism proudly. Cannabis Finder
