Overview

George McMahon, afflicted with pain, spasms and nausea from the treatment of a rare terminal disease has, despite his personal trial, become one of the leading crusaders for the legalization of medical marijuana. One of only six United States citizens given the substance by the little known "Uncle Sam's Marijuana Farm," McMahon fights to bring similar relief to people suffering from such illnesses as glaucoma, cancer, hepatitis C, multiple sclerosis, trauma and spasms who can be helped by prescription pot. From the steps of state capitols and presenting his case before the Supreme Court, to testifying before Congress and appearing on local and national media, McMahon carries on his arduous struggle.

The recipient of the Certificate of Heroism, given to him by former first lady Nancy Reagan, now reveals his unique, courageous journey and sounds a call to arms for those who would join his ongoing battle to legalize medical marijuana. This compelling story puts a human face on a controversial, pressing national issue.
