Reader: I moved to Colorado for medical marijuana and my life is better for it

paige.figi.charlotte.205x205.jpg
Yesterday, William Breathes posted about the rapidly growing number of minors on the medical marijuana registry since CNN told the moving story of Colorado's Charlotte Figi, seen here with her mom, Paige. Included among the responses to the piece was the following, in which a reader tells her own story about coming to the state for MMJ.

Maggie May writes:

Every time this comes up it makes me so emotional. I moved here recently to have MMJ access and my life is better for it. It's terrible that these families have to try all these harmful Rx drugs first and uproot their lives for access to this medicine. And I know from personal experience that there is a certain amount of ridicule that comes with that decision. I think the Stanley brothers are going to keep doing CO proud! :)

Yes. To turn a profit, not because they needed it for medicinal use.

HipTip to the Med Cannabis Vagabonds -- California and Oregon have a much more robust, liberal and developed Medical Marijuana Industry ... YEARS ahead of anything in Colorado 


... regardless of the BS hype spewed by Westweed

Me. And there are several people I know that have and more that would, if their situation permitted.

Not surprised a good number of people are moving here for our MMJ. Colorado seems to be the pioneers for CBD. R4 was created here and I believe it's the highest tested CBD strain in the world to date not to mention Charlottes Web, Harliquin, and I believe there are more I'm forgetting. Well done Colorado MMJ!

Plenty of other states to move to for med pot, nothing special about Colorado's pot.

Utter nonsense from a know-nothing imbecile.

Lock up your daughters
And lock up your wife
Lock up your back door
And run for your life
The Rev. is back in town ...

@DonkeyHotay @..Matt.. Stop harassing me. I've told before and I will not say it again. And YES, Colorado IS the pioneer for CBD but you wouldn't know due to lack of insurance. Have a lovely day and life and from now on leave me be as we had discussed. Thank you :)

@DonkeyHotay @..Matt.. @.matt.. Screw it. See you in court. Clearly that's the only thing that will work. I'll just get your IP address from Westword and we'll go from there. See ya soon! Really wish you could have been an adult about this...
