I was involved in a car accident. Since that time, I have had three
back surgeries and have not been able to work. I was told by my doctor
last week that I may need yet another surgery.

I am on six different medications for all of my symptoms. What is one
medication that could ease my symptoms without causing so much bodily
harm? After much reading and gathering facts I have found that miracle
medication - marijuana.

I love this great state of Illinois and want to live and enjoy my life
here as best as I can.

Many other states have decided that marijuana for medical use is
acceptable. I have written to several Illinois state legislators
asking the question: "When will Illinois decide, like many other
states in this country, it is time for change?"
