    ALS for 22 Years; Activism for 11 Years - Urgent Message!

    "Stand Up & Tell the Truth!"
    Feb.22.2008 - Surviving ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's Disease), with medical Cannabis for over 20 years and publicly fighting for everyone's right to have the God-given medicine for 11 years, Cathy Jordan and her husband Bob have succeeded in many ways, living life to its' fullest.
    But an incident in nearby Tampa shocked them back to the reality that too many seriously ill people face. A paraplegic man in police custody was dumped from his wheelchair onto the floor. This scene was seen around the world, but hit home especially to the Jordans, as this is what they've always feared.
    With ALS, Cathy can't even raise her arms up and, if she is in shock from fear, cold and mishandling, she could choke to death without someone with intimate knowledge of her condition being present.
    The Jordans feel, as do so many now, that the time to end this fear is now. We all must repeatedly contact our representatives in government - especially the U. S. House of Representatives, which will vote on legislation this summer stipulating that the federal government leave medical marijuana patients alone and let the states decide matters of health and welfare for their citizens.
    Visit Americans for Safe Access for information and activist tools for educating the public and our legislators about the urgency of this issue:
    ASA : Advancing Legal Medical Marijuana Therapeutics and Research

    Please visit Cathy at:

    *** PLEASE READ: Cannabis has the most healing effects for patients early in ALS disease progression. While it can be useful later, SMOKING ANYTHING CAN BE DANGEROUS IN ADVANCED CASES OF ALS, so check with your doctor if you have any concerns. This is what works for one person and is not intended to be medical advice. ***
