Here’s a testimonial from an Iowan with chronic migraines:
“I have been getting migraines since I was about 16. I went to a neurologist at the University of Iowa to see why I was getting headaches that made me vomit and very sensitive to light and sound. Over a period of time I tried four out five different kinds of prescription drugs, The side effects for some of them are scary as hell.
It is impossible to overdose on cannabis, but the pills that doctors prescribe kill people everyday. I just don’t understand how a plant that has been here from the beginning of mankind, has never killed anyone, has medical benefits, and has hundreds of uses, is illegal.”
