My name is Joe Tierney and I am medical marijuana patient in the District of Columbia.  I have PTSD and experience the typical symptoms of anxiety, depression, & poor impulse control that accompany it. When I was a teenager, I discovered that cannabis eased these troubles, allowing me to relax, take a step back, & think through a problem instead of lashing out.
Twenty years later, I’m a dedicated 9-5er, a grateful husband, and a delighted uncle. Thanks to cannabis, I’m just like everyone else. I deserve the same rights and am ready to fight for them!
I am incredibly excited about the current wave of legalization and am an avid cannabis tourist.  I’ve been to the High Times Cannabis Cup in Denver, done dabs with the Refine Seattle team, and nearly took a job working at a dispensary in Portland. I can’t wait to see the future of cannabis in America and look forward to sharing it with you!
