Coltyn Turner has been in the news before. He takes cannabis oil four times a day as treatment for his Crohn's disease, and back in June he famously told CBS Denver "I'd rather be illegally alive than legally dead."
Now, in light of controversy surrounding DEA Chief Chuck Rosenberg's quip about medical marijuana being a joke, young Turner is going viral again for asking a simple question.
In the video, Turner rises from his wheelchair and briefly explains what medical marijuana has done for him before looking into the camera and addressing the head of the United States Drug Enforcement Agency, "Am I a joke?"
#imnotajoke. 20 months in remission from Crohns, RA and Lupus because of MARIJUANA!! Hey Chuck! Coltyn Turner is NOT a joke!! Cannabis is medicine! #resignchuck #coltynscrue
