Virginia NORML Forum – Marijuana saved my life: Cannabis as medicine in Virginia
September 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Virginia NORML for a forum on the new medical cannabis law, who it will help, and how to talk to your doctor about whether or not medical cannabis might be right for you.
Leading the discussion will be the foremost expert on medical cannabis in Virginia, NORML’s Jenn Michelle Pedini. Jenn Michelle helped write the current law, and has advised dozens of members of the General Assembly about medical cannabis best practice.
Serving on the panel will be:
+ Lisa Bohn, a Purple Heart veteran who uses cannabis to help her cope with PTSD
+ Melanie Davis, an ER nurse who helps her 9-year-old daughter mitigate the impact of cancer by using medical cannabis
+ Creed Leffler, who lives with Cerebral Palsy with the help of cannabis
Introduction and welcome by cancer survivor and one of the organizers of Legalize Virginia Festival, Janelle Burchfield.
The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited so please arrive early. This event is part of the week long Legalize Virginia Festival at O’Connor Brewing.
