Catherine Jordan was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in 1986. She outlived 4 neurologists, all thanks to marijuana. Put the bucket down and allow us to have cannabis. Cathy has survived ALS by using cannabis. The Ice Bucket Challenge has been great at raising awareness about the condition but hasn’t raised any debate about treatment with a plant that has proven to give patients pain relief and give those suffering a better quality of life. Cathy herself has her own Youtube channel with lots of video and hasn’t let the condition stop her in her fight against the disease, while raising awareness of Cannabis as a treatment for the disease.
Cathy realizes the harms associated with drug abuse and drug prohibition. She is serving as President of FLCAN (Florida Cannabis Action Network) , in part, to give a voice to other ALS patients.
