Before she had access to legal medical cannabis she could barely brush her teeth.

Wright says if the program were to end, as it’s set to sunset in about 2 years, she would leave Illinois for a state where she could get cannabis legally. Wright joins others across the state urging the governor to approve 8 other conditions to the list of ailments people suffer from to get legal access to medical cannabis.
