Coltyn Turner, at the time 15 year old boy who, as a result of his battle with Crohn’s disease (a severe type of inflammatory bowel disease), was so ill that he had to be confined to a wheelchair, recently testified before the Colorado State Legislature that he’d “rather be illegally alive than legally dead.”
This is because he used cannabis to treat his disease, which is illegal in his home state of Illinois. Simply in order to treat their son with cannabis, his family was forced to re-locate to Colorado.
“He’s a prisoner in the state of Colorado because of medication. Coltyn can’t go, he can’t go back home, he can’t go see his friends, he can’t go see his family, he is stuck in the state of Colorado… He can’t live a normal life in the place where he grew up and the place where he has six generations of family. It’s just tough.” (source)
Over the past year, Coltyn has used cannabis oil on his path to healing. He developed Crohn’s disease (that was believed to be a result of a bacterial infection), and his condition deteriorated at a rapid pace. At that point, doctors recommended turning towards holistic remedies, which is why his family began to consider cannabis oil their best option.
Multiple studies have emerged over the years clearly showing the potential for cannabis to heal Chron’s disease. This is not debatable and the science continues to emerge.
The best way to go about this is to grow your own cannabis. Many people are taking this route
