“My name is Angel McClary Raich.  I have been permanently disabled since
September 1995.   I was one of 14 'medical necessity' patients that the Oakland Cannabis Buyers’ Cooperative was fighting for in the United States Supreme Court in 2001.  I am a mother of 27 year old son and a 25 year old daughter.  My children know more than anyone how medical cannabis brought their mommy back to them.   The hardest part of being disabled is watching the suffering in your children’s eyes as they watch you endure such suffering with no end in sight.

In late 1997, my doctor felt cannabis would be an effective medication to treat my  many complicated and complex medical conditions.  I was in a wheelchair from January 1996 to August 1999.  Cannabis was responsible for getting me out of my wheelchair and restoring mobility on the whole right side of my body.  For
years I felt as if I was suffering in Hell.  What I had to endure was unbelievable and indescribable torture.  I will not go back to Hell for anyone or anything.

I suffer greatly from severe chronic pain every single day.  The prolonged pain and suffering from my medical conditions significantly interferes with my quality of life.  My treatment is complicated by the fact that I am violently allergic and have severe multiple chemical sensitivities to almost all pharmaceutical medicines. This interferes with the treatment of all of my medical conditions, and it means my suffering cannot be controlled by synthetic medications. This makes it extre
mely difficult for doctors to effectively help me combat my diseases.  Without cannabis my life would be a death sentence.”

Angel’s primary care physician, Frank Lucido, M.D. states, "Angel has no reasonable legal alternative to cannabis for the effective treatment or alleviation of her medical conditions or symptoms associated with the medical conditions because she has tried essentially all other legal alternatives to cannabis and the alternatives have been ineffective or result in intolerable side effects.  Angel will suffer imminent harm without access to cannabis.  Angel needs to medicate every two waking hours. After a certain number of medications have been tried, it would be malpractice to subject the patient to further unnecessary harm."  Angel’s medical records show she runs a very real risk of malnutrition and starvation without the use of medical cannabis.
