Watch the amazing change that happens when this woman with cerebral palsy smokes cannabis

Jacqueline Patterson has cerebral palsy, a congenital disorder affecting her motor functions. As a result of her condition, she suffers from a severe speech impediment along with major pain and muscle weakness on the right side of her body. This video excerpt from the documentary In Pot We Trust demonstrates the amazing effect cannabis has on her condition.

Jacqueline Patterson has cerebral palsy, a congenital disorder affecting her motor functions. As a result of her condition, she suffers from a severe speech impediment along with major pain and muscle weakness on the right side of her body. This video excerpt from the documentary In Pot We Trust demonstrates the amazing effect cannabis has on her condition.

Patterson doesn’t want her condition to affect her ability to be a mother to her children, so she looked for alternative treatments. She soon discovered that cannabis released a significant amount of her tension and pain, but most notably reduced her stutter.

Unfortunately, if she’s caught buying or smoking the plant, she risks losing custody of her children.

After Patterson was reported for possession in Kansas City, she moved to California and won a court case arguing that her consumption of marijuana was strictly for medicinal purposes.

    We have the ability to help people with an inexpensive herb but the sanctimonious Republicans won’t allow it. But then that is nothing new. They don’t give a crap about the average person, only their rich benefactors and the religious idiots that vote for them.

    What an absolutely amazing effect!

    To me, this demonstrates that the war on pot only causes suffering. Why deny someone a harmless herb that treats such a debilitating condition out of misguided, prudish attitudes that originally were born out of racism? It’s not like legal weed will see people breaking into people’s bedrooms and forcing them to smoke pot.

    Somebody get that woman a vaporizer. I hate to see people using cannabis by smoking it when there are other non-combustible ways.

    Republicans are FAR worse than Democrats actually. You obviously don’t know what you speak of.

    And still its forbidden to use canabis related products in great parts of the world. The law strengthened by the farmacy industry and visa versa is the major pain in the ass.

    Thanks, Clint, for the critique. This is a great discussion. And Frank, *you* are one of my favorite people to disagree with.
