Anita Morgan, Representative Pamela Anderson & Ray Morgan
Speaker 1: North Dakota cannabis. Anita Morgan first joins us to share her thoughts on the North Dakota when she explains that North Dakotans quickly caught onto the compassionate care initiative based on sharing personal stories on facebook leading up to election day. The initiative was launched based on re Morgan's medical issues and supported by state representative Pamela Anderson. Pamela Anderson then joins us and explains that she shared with the legislature that if they didn't act, the voters would and so anita and re run with the initiative. Ray Morgan, who really started this whole thing then joins us and takes us through how cannabis as medicine is his issue and where we are with North Dakota cannabis as we make our way into 2017.

Speaker 2: Absolutely. And we're talking about ray, your husband, Anita Morgan. Thank you so much for giving us a few minutes here. Congratulations on the North Dakota when. Huh?
Speaker 3: Thank you very much. It was exciting
Speaker 2: a league, uh, you know, just a veritable bastion of a left wing nut jobs. North Dakota, right? Yeah. No, not at all. So let's, let's get into, let's get into exactly how this happened. Um, you, you shared that it was, you know, essentially, uh, a calling as far as raises a medical situation. Is that fair?
Speaker 3: Yeah, it was. We had a long health journey personally and with the back surgery that winter rye and uh, ended up with a drop foot and neuropathy and it's just been a long road, which is not an uncommon story when you listen to the facebook family for the North Dakota Compassionate Care, the health journeys that people have endured was basically what kind of precipitated this. His personal story started it, but then we found other people that put the state. So I'm measured five and it's, it's been heartbreaking and rewarding to do it.
Speaker 2: Well, let's, let's talk about heartbreaking because I do want to give, you know, you're obviously our first guest from North Dakota. So I do want to give folks a sense of what's happening on the ground, which it sounds like is what's happening on the ground everywhere on earth. So as far as, as heartbreaking is concerned, can shed some light there.
