Letter: Advance medical cannabis program
September 4, 2015

Dear Editor:

I’m an Illinois nurse suffering from chronic pain, recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. As a clinician and now patient, I’m urging Governor Rauner to advance the medical cannabis program so patients have access to a natural and effective medicine that has been living in the shadows of less effective, highly addictive and sometime deadly prescription drugs for far too long.

Time is not on our side, there needs to be a sense of urgency.
