National Multiple Sclerosis Society Needs to Hear from Patients PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 21 September 2006

Active Image If you are a medical marijuana MS patient, now is the perfect time for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) to hear from you! They’ve recently provided an easy Internet mechanism for you to do so at Face of MS.

Prompted by patients and clinical trials of Sativex, NMSS is funding a study to determine the effectiveness of marijuana with a new system that objectively measures spasticity. NMSS believes the study, due in March 2008, will be the first marijuana study to meet rigorous scientific standards for data. Armed with patients’ stories and scientific data, NMSS could become a powerful ally for medical marijuana. Need more support before speaking up? Check out the Multiple Sclerosis Patients Union, a network of MS patients and supporters who advocate for safe and legal access to medical marijuana.
