Medmar Media byte

South Dakota is set to decide medical marijuana and Marijuana Policy Project has been working in the forefront of this initiative.

Their first ad for the measure features South Dakota resident and medical marijuana patient Valerie Hannah, who was exposed to nerve gas while serving as a combat medic in the Gulf War. As a result, she suffers from a degenerative illness that causes constant deep-muscle and neurological pain, and she uses medical marijuana to alleviate her symptoms.
Hannah states, “I don’t regret serving my country. But it should not be a crime to treat my pain and suffering.”
You can see the ad here. I hope it passes. The real crime is withholding a natural medicine that works from the terminally ill people who find relief in it.
