Iowa Women’s Group Pushes For Marijuana Reform

Marijuana awareness focusing on law reform was hosted by the Iowa NORML Women’s Alliance

IOWA:  West Liberty resident Dawn King says legalized medical marijuana could make a big difference in helping her treat chronic pain from spinal stenosis.

King attended an awareness event focused on Iowa’s marijuana laws that was hosted by the Iowa NORML Women’s Alliance today and said she experiences a great deal of pain from spinal stenosis, a condition she’s had for six years that narrows her spinal canal and “slowly crunches” her nerves.

She said she’s taken drugs such as hydrocodone that doctors prescribed to her but that these drugs make her “loopy” without taking away her pain.

The awareness event took place at F.W. Kent Park and featured speakers and entertainment including a speech by Lee Hieb, who is a Libertarian candidate for governor and a trauma surgeon.
