420 Girl – Alison Myrden


Diagnosed with chronic progressive MS in 1992 at the age of 28, wheelchair bound Alison Myrden says that no other drug, legal or illegal, has been able to reduce the ongoing, 25 year long violent pain in her face like marijuana. She found this salvation after a drug regimen of thousands of pills a day, including morphine. “None of that worked, so I went back to medical marijuana,” says the retired law enforcement officer from Burlington, Ontario. She has been a speaker for LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) since 2004, with the support of many officers. She was one of Canada’s first legally licensed medical cannabis users in 1994. – The Medical Marijuana Review
