Having survived Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) for 22 years using cannabis (marijuana) as medicine, Cathy Jordan of Florida explains how it works to keep her alive – as a neuroprotective, cough stimulation, and the “cottonmouth” effect that controls the excess saliva so dangerous to ALS patients.
Cathy also cites proven efficacy for Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease, while predicting breakthroughs for Autism and Alzheimer’s.
“Cathy Jordan is our friend and our hero as a patient advocate. Her story is amazing and she has been relentless in her efforts to teach people (especially neurologists) about the efficacy of cannabis for ALS,” says Mary Lynn Mathre, of Patients Out of Time.
This video was submitted to the Iowa Board of Pharmacy hearing in November of 2009, with 11 other patients from the Cannabis Patient Network.
