Faye Jones

Medical cannabis patient and Chief Administrator, United Patients Alliance

Faye was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 27; she is a successful corporate PA and committed cannabis consumer. When she became ill she quickly came to appreciate the medicinal value of cannabis where pain, nausea and inflammation are concerned. Without it, she insists, her condition would make her unemployable, taking away the thing that she most values, her independence.

Faye strongly advocates for a regulated market that can benefit society in a multitude of ways, the most important of which are reducing the harm caused by unregulated drugs and the protection of vulnerable people who are currently exposed to criminals in order to find medical relief.
