Heather Torgerson Supports Prop 203 on Fox

Video: Heather Torgerson Supports Prop 203 on Fox

Medical marijuana saved my life.

This isn't a policy argument in favor of Proposition 203; this is what happened to me, a young, outgoing, 26-year-old pursuing her dreams. I am sharing this so that anyone who has any doubt about the need for medical marijuana will understand the difference this medicine can make.

n 2007, I was diagnosed with stage IV brain cancer and given a grim prognosis: I likely had just six months to live. My only chance for survival was a brutal regimen of chemotherapy coupled with radiation. For months I endured muscle weakness, fatigue, loss of appetite, and strong bouts of nausea. I was losing weight, losing my hair and worst of all my strength. The side effects of the treatment were literally killing me and no pharmaceutical drug was alleviating any of my symptoms.

  1. Thats a bomb video! Hemp oil is a medicine whether it is smoked, ingested in a pill, or used topically!

  2. I do not understand why the one lady would be against people like her getting some benefit from Cannabis. I am glad and grateful that the pill worked for you. It did not work very well in my case(either I had to be in pain for an hour, waiting for the pill to kick in, or the dose made me groggy and non-functional. It works a little bit on me, but why would I settle for partial pain and symptom relief when I can get the relief in seconds? She is not against THC because it works for her, so it must be that she is against the natural vs a pill. I have been on chemo for 20 years for HIV. Why the hell would I want to take one more pill when I don't have to? As a side note, since I have been a legal grower of Cannabis and I have found that the small live buds,when eaten, stops my nausea dead. Much quicker than the pill form. Here is a question- why would you force me to suffer if I choose to use a naturally safe plant instead of more pills? There is more to the story of the marinol lady for her to be that afraid of a harmless plant.
