More insights into the clueless lives of the Romney clan. The wife of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has made public recently, that she to has dealt with M.S. for many years. Ann Romney boasts that being involved with ‘dressage,’ also known as “horse ballet,” has alleviated her debilitating conditions from her illness. Really?
Mrs. Romney – a quick word of advise, not everyone has access to such riches – Ann Romney has been very fortunate to have the best that money could buy, not all M.S. sufferers have a stable of treatment at their disposal. The Romney’s are the owners of several horses, including one that may make the “big-show” – the 2012 Summer Olympics. The price tag of each…just about $100,000, give-or-take.
Everyone should have the option to find the best relief they can to treat their illnesses. One would think that if you are diagnosed with a disease – you should be able to seek out the ‘best’ possible treatment. Well not everyone agrees…Mitt Romney would be one of them.
Mitt Romney has been against medical marijuana for medicinal use and disagrees in legalizing this versatile plant. Maybe Romney didn’t get the memo that studies have found medical cannabis helps relieve pain and muscle spasms due to M.S. There are countless Americans that use medical marijuana to help provide relief from the agonizing pain that multiple sclerosis inflicts on their muscles and body – the same relief that Ann professes to get from her involvement with Ballet Horse.
It’s a shame not everyone has a disposable income of $100,000. Unlike the Romneys, most M.S patients can’t afford to maintain a stable of horses let alone a tiny pony – they need to find other methods to help reduce their symptoms. If everyone had a magic lamp with a genie inside and one of their wishes was for a pony – Is there any scientific data to help support that being involved with dressage would treat M.S. patients. On top of that, many people find it difficult to ride a horse. What we know – thanks to scientific research – medical marijuana does improve the quality of life for multiple sclerosis patients. These same patients that use many different strains of marijuana as treatment, Mitt believes they should be treated like criminals.
Luckily for Ann she has the income to “legally” assist in her debilitating condition. Not everyone has a stable in their courtyard. Perhaps one day in their courtyard they’ll have a beautiful, green, marijuana sproutlet. In a world one day…
