Congressional candidates Marcy Winograd and Steve Collett speak with medical marijuana caregiver Mieko Perez, who administers medical cannabis to her autistic son, Joey, after she was told he had only a few months to live. That was over two years ago and Joey is a healthy and happy boy today!

Mieko was on hand to show her support for medical cannabis patients Mollie Fry and Dale Schafer, and for the rights of all medical marijuana patients at the rally held in front of the Los Angeles DEA office in conjunction with rallies held around the country.

The Los Angeles rally was organized by Ms. Winograd, herself a community organizer and former medical cannabis caregiver when her mother was at the end of her life and was looking for a better quality of it.

Winograd, who put up 41% against Jane Harmen in last year’s primary, hopes to fill Harmen’s vacated seat in a special election May 18, has called an end to all wars, including the war on drugs and has pledged to not fund efforts to fight such silly battles.
