Reader: I moved to Colorado for medical marijuana and my life is better for it

Yesterday, William Breathes posted about the rapidly growing number of minors on the medical marijuana registry since CNN told the moving story of Colorado's Charlotte Figi, seen here with her mom, Paige. Included among the responses to the piece was the following, in which a reader tells her own story about coming to the state for MMJ.

Maggie May writes:

Every time this comes up it makes me so emotional. I moved here recently to have MMJ access and my life is better for it. It's terrible that these families have to try all these harmful Rx drugs first and uproot their lives for access to this medicine. And I know from personal experience that there is a certain amount of ridicule that comes with that decision. I think the Stanley brothers are going to keep doing CO proud! :)
