Lorna has been involved with cannabis for over 50 years. Cannabis is an excellent therapy for her lifelong pain from a Junior High gym class accident and a congenital problem with her spine that has resulted in 45+ surgeries including seven spinal fusions.
High dosages of opioids led Lorna to a zombie-like existence. Lorna was over-prescribed opioids in the past and has discontinued their use except for post-surgical pain. Cannabis has enabled her to live life relatively pain-free without being in an opioid fog. Lorna has been a member of MassCann since 2018 and a director and Clerk since May 2019. She is the Tech Committee Chairperson and she is active on a variety of MassCann committees.
