One Response to NORMLTN Invited To Weekly Nashville Music Festival.

  • I live in Bluff City, Tennessee and I would like to address an issue I have and that is Medical Marijuana being legalized in the state of Tennessee.
    I am 22 years old and I have Cerebral Palsy on my right side as well as Seizures Artistes MS in my back.
    I have been in and out of the hospital since I was born. The Doctors that I have talked to, told me they would get me the best health care available. Unfortunately, they have not.
    They will not even give me pain medication under the new health laws.
    I went to a Pain Management Facility in my local city and they said they would give me steroid shots in my back. I did research and my findings that 6 people have died receiving the steroid shots.
    I do not want to take the shots due to the high risks involved.
    My family doctor told me to smoke marijuana even though it is illegal. Marijuana actually helps my Cerebral Palsy and my pain issues.
    The pain I experience is leading to more frequent seizures, so many in fact, I’m not sure how much more pain I can endure. I hate breaking the law but I no longer want to live in pain.
    I would like to reduce the pain the best way possible and without the use of artificial drugs that actually only cover up the disease and get me addicted. Medicinal Marijuana does not do either of these things. It is a cure and not a cover up.
    When the doctors refuse to give me medication, I have to find something and Marijuana is helping.
    It shows in studies that Marijuana helps in Arthritis as well as my seizures.
    I have contacted The White House and my local District Representative via both email and phone. I have not gotten a response from The White House but of the Representatives, 1 out of 5 agreed.
    I have tried emailing local news stations to get my word out but they also will not put it on the air.
    I have contacted CNN to no avail.
    I live in a very difficult life with this Cerebral Palsy, the pain worsens by the day and it also gets worse as I get older.
    With the side-affects that come along with the Cerebral Palsy, I have seizures from the pain, anxiety attacks which can last up to 10 minutes with loss of breathing and blueness of my body.
    I cannot even get my GED to live a productive life like I need to, no can I enter the work force which makes me feel extremely bad.
    I am a burden to my Mother, who has to stay with me 24/7 taking care of me. I feel I have aided in the destruction of marriages due to my disease.
    I have been to Shriner’s Hospital in Greenville, South Carolina. They will not help either.
    With doctors not knowing all there is to know about Cerebral Palsy, I have been given the wrong drugs. That is very scary.
    Marijuana relieves the muscle tightness in my throat and chest so I can actually breath normally and reduces the anxiety attacks and seizures.
    With no help in sight, I have taken matters into my own hands even if it means breaking the law.
    I do not have the financial means to move from the state of Tennessee…I don’t know where else to turn.
    Have you ever felt so helpless in your life? It’s no life at all, I can attest to that.
    Thank you for taking the time to read, for the interest and hopefully a suggestion for assistance. PS PLEASE SHARE AN LIKEhttps://www.facebook.com/tngreenerpastures
