Louie, 77 – Greenough, MT
Louie deals with pain from his shingles, herpetic neuralgia, and multiple joint replacements. But this patriarch and third generation Montanan refuses to slow down, helping run the family horse and guest ranch, and even winning the roping competition at a rodeo’s as recently as 2014.
Knowing this, his daughter, Juanita, decided to intervene and suggest him trying cannabis because she could see her Dad was in pain. Although Louie, like most folks, had lumped cannabis in with other illegal drugs his whole life, he decided to give it a try. A lot of it has to do with increased coverage in the mainstream media and the recent legalization in Washington.
But Louie has not had the chance to try Cannabis.
His card came back from the Department of Health on September 1 – just twenty four hours after the implementation of SB 423.
