Episode 20 is part-one of a two-part series where I address the legal and social dilemmas that affects a lot of people, not just here in the United States, but around the world.
In Part one, I take a look at the dilemma of knowing that cannabis may be able to safely and effectively treat a condition that you, or a loved one, are struggling with and yet, the state or country that you live in, still has existing laws making the mere possession of it a serious crime, often punishable by imprisonment.
In Part two, I will address the terrible social consequences and dilemmas that many face when considering the use of medical cannabis. What do you do when the price of using medical cannabis is the loss of your family, friends and social support? And what can make these dilemmas so terrible is that oftentimes cannabis may be the only effective treatment for what you are struggling with, such as severe epilepsy or brain cancer, thus making it truly a life and death decision.
In this episode, I talk about how do deal with the potential legal consequences of using medical cannabis in an illegal state, and to help with this conversation, I will be talking with three ladies who have a lot of knowledge and experience with this dilemma.
First, I will be talking with Diana Peña, co-founder of Myriam’s Hope, an excellent collective located down in southern California. Myriam’s Hope specializes in working with people who are struggling with cancers and epilepsy, and who oftentimes, are looking to cannabis as their last resort. Myriam’s Hope has a network of excellent medical professionals and provide some of the best dosing protocols available.
Next, I talk with Corinne Malanca, co-founder, with John Malanca, of The United Patients Group, which is a wonderful resource educating and helping people around the world to gain access to much needed information and medical resources in regards to medical cannabis.
The United Patients Group is an amazing resource that provides not only support to patients, but has also taken the reins of becoming one of the premier resources for the education of health professionals, legal professionals and government bodies. They truly are changing the landscape of medical cannabis.
And finally, I will be talking with Debbie M. Wilson PhD. Debbie is a remarkable woman, and a very good friend of mine, who has more personal experience in this area than anybody that I know.
I interviewed Debbie back in episode 9 and 10, where she shares her experience of having her life saved by cannabis after 20 years of seizures to become one of the nation’s most powerful advocates for medical cannabis, and for the rights of the disabled. Don’t mess with Debbie!
Please note: I am in no way encouraging anybody to do anything illegal. I highly recommend that you speak with an attorney before considering any actions that may be against any local, state or federal laws.
