Over thirty years ago, a woman named Cathy Jordanwas diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. In 1986 she was given 3 to 5 years to live. At a time when marijuana was in no way recognized as a valid medical treatment, and with no other treatments to rely on, she put her hope in marijuana. Every doctor she spoke with was outraged with this decision. Today Cathy is alive and thriving while most of the doctors with whom she spoke are not.
“All my docs are retiring or dead. I’ve outlived 5 support groups and 4 neurologists,” Cathy told Americans for Safe Access’ Jahan Marcu.
ALS is characterized by the death of motor neurons leading to loss of limb control, breathing, swallowing, speech and widespread cellular dysfunction. “Most people start using a feeding tube because they are afraid of choking to death”, says Cathy. Mrs. Jordan began using cannabis from a Florida grower to treat her ALS in the late 80’s. “Donny Clark provided my medicine, grown in the Myakka River Valley… he was busted and sentenced to life in prison, and that strain of cannabis was lost.”
