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.

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! :)
