  • I have been using cannabis for medicinal reasons since a major car accident 40-plus years ago. I was told I would not walk again, nor would I see out of my right eye.
    I walk carefully and sometimes with assistance. I am losing my sight in the right eye. Ulnar nerve damage disabled me from driving, hooking a bra, backs of earrings, opening a wine bottle, etc. You get it.
    Every Western pill I have ingested has given me adverse reactions, including severe depression. With cannabis I am able to soften the pain to being able to function in the things I do. Depression becomes nonexistent.
    I am on disability because of all this and honestly, I can't afford for my husband to take off work, drive me to Salem or Portland, stay a night or two and eat out, etc. Come on. This is not unfair only to me but all the patients in Southern Oregon. Even Congress is looking at this unjust system on herb, finally. This will only open the black market that I thought Oregon wanted to avoid. — Tricia Titus, Grants Pass
