Iowans rally for statewide marijuana legalization
The daily pills 39-year-old Angel Francis-Kline has to take makes it hard for her to handle everyday life.
In a day, she can take between 12 to 16 pills to deal with her fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, post-traumatic stress disorder, insomnia and early on-set menopause. The combination of her pills, like Cymbalta and Hydrocodone make her uncontrollably shake and have seizures, causing dangerous situations, especially when she's driving.
"It's living everyday in pain," Francis-Kline. said. "What they're making me take is poison."
One evening, after taking a hit of hash oil concentrate, commonly known as a "dab," Francis-Kline said she safely drove back home, felt no pain for over six hours and was able to fall asleep around midnight rather than the usual 3 a.m.
That's why she, along with dozens of other marijuana advocates, rallied across downtown, and stopped at the Iowa Capitol to share stories on why the legalization of marijuana needs to come to Iowa.
"I think it's ridiculous you can't treat yourself in a natural way," Francis-Kline said.
