Journey For Justice

In September 1997, Jacki led a number of patients, care providers and supporters on the Wisconsin Journey For Justice, a 210-mile wheelchair journey from Mondovi to Madison to kick off the introduction of medicinal marijuana legislation.

The Journey began at the grave of Dr. William Wright, a courageous physician who treated Jacki for many years. Dr. Wright's heroic efforts to enroll Jacki in the Compassionate IND program resulted in her being approved for a federal prescription for therapeutic cannabis, but the government cruelly reneged on their contract and never delivered her medicine.

Some links to articles about the Journey and photographs can be found below.

Along with Marv Simonis, three Journey patient/participants have passed on since the September 1997 event. As the toll mounts, the government keeps telling patients to wait for research that never comes. How many more people are going to die before our medicine is legal?
