Portsmouth Woman Crusades to Legalize Medical Marijuana

A former cancer patient who is now is in remission is taking on the controversial topic of legalizing the use of medical marijuana in Ohio with a series of speaking engagements. Cheryl Shuman says opponents of the amendment that would legalize medical use, claim that it’s a gateway drug and has no legitimate medical use.

 Ms. Shuman told WNKU’s Matt Kelley that her therapist and doctor recommended trying cannabis when legal drugs failed to help her. (get more information about the amendment at www.ohiorightsgroup.org/ohio-canabise-rights-amandment-full-text )
