Oklahoma medical marijuana advocate to receive humanitarian award
becoming an advocate for medical marijuana began at home, when he began researching ways to help alleviate his wife’s debilitating migraines.
The more research he did, the more he became convinced that medical marijuana is a moral issue, and when he talks about it his passion is easy to hear.
“Medical marijuana is a human rights issue,” he told KRMG Tuesday. “We have patients that are suffering and dying right here in our own state every day that relief could be brought to by medical marijuana. Cures could be made from medical marijuana to help these people. And the fact that we’re denying the cures to these patients is an abolute human rights issue.”
Many agree, and to them it seems fitting that in December, Caviness will receive a humanitarian award from the Oklahoma Universal Human Rights Alliance.
