Marsden to Discuss Access to Medical Cannabis

State Sen. David W. Marsden will discuss the benefits of the medical cannabis preparations made available through Virginia's regulated program. Speaking at OLLI Mason, 4210 Roberts Rd., Fairfax, VA, April 16, 2:15-3:40 p.m. Marsden will detail his five-year effort to make these oils available to Virginians whose doctors feel they will help any condition or disorder they may have. The oils have remarkable abilities to help with epilepsy, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, nephropathy, and other conditions affecting pain in bodily joints. Marsden will review how they can be obtained from the five licensed processors authorized by the General Assembly to deliver these products to your door.
