Grammy-Winning Singer Becomes Cannabis Advocate

In 2004, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge was diagnosed with breast cancer and has been living a healthy and cancer-free life for just over a decade. During her struggle, she underwent a lumpectomy and five rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. To ease her pain, doctors prescribed her steroids and painkillers, a total of five pharmaceuticals, but she refused to take them. Instead, she started smoking medicinal marijuana, and although she’d been smoking since she was 21-years-old, her experience with medical marijuana forever changed her stance on the healing plant. Etheridge is now a cannabis advocate helping to destigmatize the drug and other patients suffering from similar pain.


With the end of the spring legislative session just days away, New York lawmakers are making one final push towards legalizing cannabis in the Empire State. The hope is to vote on legalization this Wednesday. There have been a lot of ups and down for Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) and his fight to legalize recreational cannabis in New York.
