In 1976 Robert C. Randall became the first individual to gain legal access to federal supplies of marijuana for medical use.
He used it to treat his glaucoma. At the time virtually no one knew about marijuana's medical use.
Today the medical use of marijuana is widely accepted. Medical Marijuana in America: Memoir of a Pioneer reveals the unlikely David and Golaith story behind this national issue. It chronicles the life of one remarkable man and his devoted wife Alice. Randall is the acknowledged "Father" of the medical marijuana movement and Alice has been called the First Lady of Medical Marijuana.
This is a shocking story of government indifference to the seriously ill and the unbelievable steps taken by the federal government to squash the medical marijuana movement. It is part history and part biography. But it is also a love story of a remarkable collaboration that changed the way America looks at marijuana.
