A woman with multiple sclerosis was convicted of drug possession - MS - Brief Article

Renee Emry Wolfe, 39, of Ann Arbor, MI lit a marijuana cigarette in a congressman's Capitol Hill office when she felt the onset of an attack related to her illness. Wolfe was sentenced to 50 hours of community service and to pay court costs of $50 because she did not meet the burden of proof for a medical defense. She went to Rep. Bill McCollum's office to protest his resolution saying marijuana is dangerous and should not be legalized for medical use. A neurologist testified that marijuana works as a muscle relaxant allowing people with MS to control their shaking or spasticity.
