A woman who suffers impairment from cerebral palsy says – and shows – smoking marijuana helps ease her symptoms.

Jacqueline Patterson was featured in a documentary called, “In Pot We Trust,” which explores the politics and uses of medical marijuana.

Patterson’s cerebral palsy causes problems with some of her physical coordination and speech.

She says she moved away from Kansas City to California on the advice of a child protective service worker who was aware of her marijuana use and of her desire to keep custody of her children.

Patterson later reportedly won a court case defending her consumption as strictly for medical purposes.
