In 1999 while working as a researcher I was badly injured falling down
a water fall. After surgery for my dislocated and broken shoulder I
awoke to the tremendous burning pain of nerve damage. There was no
relief for it. I tried every pain medication they gave me. All those
pills did nothing to provide relief. All those pills made me so very

I was at the end of my rope. I couldn't live like this, no rest, no
sleep. Pain. At the insistent urging of a friend I finally gave in and
tried marijuana. I know I am alive today because I gave in and tried
marijuana. It provided relief for the nerve pain. It helped me sleep.
It saved my life.

You may not be interested in using marijuana for yourself. But know
there are many people like me living in this great state. People who
have found that nothing else works for them like medical marijuana.
I'm asking you to remember this when you vote in November. Let's
return the law to the original intent of the voters. It really is in
your hands to decrease the suffering of others. Please vote yes on
