Hello everyone... My name is Tonya Davis I am a Ohio Activist who is author and citizen sponsor of the Ohio Compassionate Act. This legislation would remove very sick people who use cannabis as a medicine under a doctors supervision and with qualifing conditions out of this drug war.
The goal now is to get the Ohio Senators to get on the ball and introduce it.
I am the State Director of the Ohio American Association for Medical Cannabis, the Medical Cannabis Director of North Ohio NORML, and the founder of mmjactionnetwork.com.
A domestic violence survivor who was beaten by her ex-husband so badly that she permanently suffers from scoliosis and is in a wheelchair. I also suffer from crippling arthritis, inflamed bowel disease with adhesions, and pseudohypoparathyroidism which prevents my body from absorbing nutrients necessary for survival
personal political philosophy is to be completely anti-drug use, but in recent years she discovered that cannabis is more effective in treating my symptoms than many of the pharmaceutical chemicals my doctors have prescribed for her.
When I have it, medical cannabis works better than a lot of other medicines on the market and it allows me to eliminate 30 of the 78 pills I use each day to survive,@ she said. Cannabis is the best expectorant and anti-inflammatory I have found. It also eases my pain and relieves my anxiety about being terminally ill.

I am literally fighting for my life,and for so many other people who just want to live with a little dignity and not be all drugged up and in a nursing home, or homeless.
I dont have a criminal record, and, as a U.S. citizen I deserve treatment and protection equal to that enjoyed by the five patients the federal government has approved to use medical cannabis.

Well thats my introduction. Im nobody special just a small fish in a huge Ocean... We would get further if everyone who reads this makes a phone call to your lawmakers and ask them to support the compassionate use of medical cannabis in your state.

Very nice meeting ya

Welcome Tonya! I'm glad you found us. Its always good to meet someone who cares enough to do something. I'm a wheelie' too and have a number of conditions I treat with Marijuana rather than hasten death with the legal killer meds. Stick around :cool:

Welcome to the forums Tonya - It's nice to see you are active with NORML - I am currently trying to contact my local NORML group and get things rolling here in Memphis. Keep up the fight, we will be heard eventually....
