Speaker 2: All right, so, so, um, in Magnolia. Welcome to Magnolia. Here we are inside the dispensary. That's Debbie goldsberry. Hi, I'm Barbara, Barbara Goldsberry. I'm actually Barbara Blazer, Debbie's mom. And so the first thing I said to Barbara Blazer, who's a registered nurse by the way and newly employed here at. Absolutely. Congratulations. Uh, was that your last name is blazer and for this industry that is A. I don't know if it's ironic or if it's appropriate. I think it's appropriate actually. I always think I should find one of those names, like on the websites people have and I started to name some of them, but they have these really fancy, fancy names, but if blazers famous on there, you got it. You don't even need to change a thing. Well, and we didn't even talk. My middle name's for.
Speaker 2: This is exactly why I wanted to kind of take the first few minutes here knowing that this is Debbie goldsberry his mother, and talk a little bit. Now you're a registered nurse and now you're in a magnolia working here. When did you get turned onto the fact that cannabis was actually medicine? Well, probably I've known for years and years and years, but as a registered nurse, my last job I was the director of a hospice and the hospice I would see patients on Fridays and just to verify they had their meds and things and we'd have ladies anxious, crying, tearing their clothes, very frightened and I'd go back in on Monday to check on them and they'd be, Hey Barbara, how was your weekend? And I would say, did you have company? And their grandson would have brought them brownies and they were now eating and smiling and not anxious.
Speaker 2: So that was when, when I thought there's something to this and so you were clued in to everything and so you. And when was this? How long ago? But about three years ago. And then I also had a very serious illness and during that illness, while I didn't use the product, I spent a lot of time researching. In particular, I got involved with children who have epilepsy syndrome, 200 seizures a day and no seizures after they go on cbd. And that kind of changed my whole attitude. So you were obviously clued into Debbie's career and then you're reading this about, uh, you know, epilepsy and then all of a sudden you're working in hospice and so you are completely enlightened. Absolutely more than supportive. And my job, and I'll let you talk to him trying to talk my ic part of my job as a 70 year old, 70 year old, 50 years experience in nursing.
