Colleen Selvera lives with a multitude of illnesses everyday. From Arthritis to Fibromyalgia, she is covered to receive medical Marijuana under the amendment.

A few of Selvera’s illnesses are covered under Issue 6, which will allow her to receive cannabis. Selvera said her son JJ also needs medical cannabis,

“He is Autistic, he’s ADD, he’s ADHD, OCD, high anxiety disorder,” said Selvera.

Those conditions aren’t covered under the medic

Under the amendment, the Arkansas Department of Health can expand the list of qualifying medical conditions. Arkansans are allowed to petition the State Department of Health for what they think should be covered. Selvera plans to do just that.

“I will do whatever it takes to make sure my son can get covered,” said Selvera.

This patient, mom, wife and advocate says she now has hope of a life without pain.
