In the July 19 Delta County Independent's article, "Orchard City citizens speak out on pot plan," it was stated that I have a "muscle disorder." In fact, I said I have multiple sclerosis, which is a neurological disorder. The CBD oil that I use helps alleviate MS-related pain and reduces muscle spasms. I find the cannabis product extremely helpful and is so inexpensive compared to prescription drugs. The reason I spoke as a proponent for the committee's recommendations is as simple as it would be hypocritical for me to personally benefit from the CBD tincture, and yet to be opposed to cannabis growing facilities.
FYI -- CBD does not make you high nor is it addictive.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
