Never Giving Up

A couple weeks ago we were lucky enough to meet Jose Martinez (IG:@1guru1). An United States Army Veteran who lost both his legs and right arm serving for our country in Iraq. Jose is a true inspiration for anyone who has ever thought about giving up-because he won't. His determination and resilience are a just a couple qualities that help his efforts in the fight for medical marijuana. His crusade against restrictive medical-marijuana laws brought him to Philadelphia recently where he met Tuffy- a nine year old who suffers from Lennox Gastaut Syndrome, a rare and catastrophic form of epilepsy. Cannabis oil has decreased Tuffy's seizures nearly 95%, from 200 a day to nearly none at all. Jose and other medical marijuana activists are traveling the country fighting for people like Tuffy. "There’s a reason for me to be here, and it’s to help out everybody who needs that push, that extra motivation to go on. Society says [people who smoke marijuana] are bad people. We’re just like everybody else." It was a true honor meeting Jose and we wish him the best of luck creating more awareness for people fighting for medical marijuana. Thanks also to Mike Whiter @phl_stoner from Weeds For Warriors Project for the photos!
