  1. This is awesome. I’m so proud of all these ladies.How can we get this in all States in America. I’ve had family die a nephew as young as 9 he fought hard, but we just got medicinal marijuana in Ohio there are all States that need it. Unfortunately I can’t use it, and I need it but, I have to much anxiety. Very proud ladies👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
