Listen to This!
In episode 21, I present part two, of the two-part series, where I talk about the legal and social dilemmas that affects a lot of people when they consider medical cannabis.
Joining me in this discussion is Diana Peña of Myriam’s Hope, Corinne Malanca of The United Patients Group, and of course my good friend Debbie M. Wilson PhD who, unfortunately, has more experience with this subject than most people.
In this episode Diana, Corinne, Debbie and I talk about the dilemma many face 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 price of using medical cannabis is the potential loss of your family, friends and you’re your social support.
And what makes this 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.
First, I talk with Diana Pena, co-founder of Myriam’s Hope, a wonderful collective located down in southern California. Myriam’s Hope specializes in working with people who are struggling with cancers and epilepsy. These people often turn to cannabis as their last resort. Myriam’s hope works with some excellent nurses and doctors and provide some of the best dosing protocols available.
Next, I talk with Corinne Malanca, co-founder, with her husband John, of The United Patients Group which is an excellent resource that provides not only support to patients, but is also one of the premier resources for the education of health professionals, legal professionals and government bodies as to the use 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.
