Karen Berger, PharmD, Medical Writer Last week, we talked about veteran Sean Worsley being sentenced to prison for five years – because of medical cannabis.
News and Updates
Sean was denied treatment by the VA, and Eboni, a certified nursing assistant, had a job offer that was rescinded, and she also lost her clearance to work with sensitive information. After spending some time sleeping in their car and living with family, the Worsleys were homeless in January of 2019. Sean lost his homeless veterans benefits with the VA because Alabama issued a fugitive warrant for his arrest after he missed a court date.

Do you find that medical cannabis provides you with incredible relief from your symptoms, but that you have trouble affording the hefty price tag every month? Many patients we have talked to, like Andrea, find that medical cannabis is a critical part of their treatment plan. However, the price is so steep that many patients have to take on several jobs just to afford their monthly allotment.

Do you or someone you know struggle with opioid use disorder? Chances are, at some point, you or someone you know has struggled with an addiction to opioids. One of the topics that we consistently discuss here at MyCureAll is the opioid epidemic. The CDC reports that over 67,000 people in the United States died in 2018 from opioids, an increase of 4% from 2017. With COVID-19 causing an increase in opioid use, these numbers will most likely continue to climb. However, while opioids are responsible for thousands of deaths every year, it is very unlikely to have a fatal overdose from cannabis. Sure, you may overdo it and have some symptoms which may even be severe, but you are unlikely to die from medical marijuana (as long as you don’t drive!)

Bryant registered his company, Roll Up Life, Inc., on November 6, 2019. When Bryant was growing up, one of his close friends was Precious Osagie-Erese. They played basketball together and were connected by their birthdays (Bryant’s is 9/9, and Osagie-Erese’s is 10/10). Not only that, but they were both at the top of the class in school and challenged each other intellectually. They reconnected a few years ago, and Osagie-Erese became chief marketing officer for Roll Up Life, Inc. She handles advertising and social media. “She is heaven sent to this operation,” Bryant says.
