Here are a couple of websites that will help South Carolinians and their preparations for Hurricane Irma which at this time of writing is still category 5 hurricane with winds sustaining at 175 mph and travelling at 16 mph towards the US coast. The first website to check out is:
It is the complete emergency listings from the state of South Carolina. Here you can find emergency planning guides, evacuation routes, shelters, where to get supplies, insurance info and school closings to name just SOME of the things you can find on there.
The second one is a link to the governor’s press conference at 2 p.m. today for those that missed it:
Here he tells us what he expects to happen in the next couple of days and what he has initiated.
I am a 47 yr old male from Southern New England originally. I was in a car accident in 1989 that was life altering. ( Click HERE to read an article written about my experience I had while I was in a coma for 2 and 1/2 days ) I lived there until roughly 1995 and I was recovered enough physically to move away from RI to help with the complex PTSD that had developed from that car accident I had in 1989. I moved to Tucson, Arizona where I learned about medical marijuana and its healing abilities on my migraines, I was younger, 25, working as an Assistant Manager of a casual serve restaurant. I overcame my injuries by the grace of God when He introduced me to medical marijuana. With the use of medical marijuana, I was able to work through my severe daily migraines and the new fibromyalgia that I had from the accident all the while earning a promotion to Store Manager of my own restaurant. After one month in that position, they did a company wide random drug screen of all their management team where I failed for THC.
I went to the Vice President of the company and explained my medical conditions and was told if I could bring him proof that marijuana helped migraines then he would reconsider letting me keep my position. I DID bring him proof from medical journals from the University of California,Berkeley which stated that “in tests for migraines it proved medical marijuana gave relief from as little as two tokes of a rolled joint of marijuana and could give relief with a few puffs several times a day.”
After seeing this, the VP told me that he was very impressed with my skills and would be proud to have me work for him. He did tell me to go find this data he went on but he never expected me to complete the task either he said. Because I did come back he would have to let me go because even with proof it was still against company policy. If they let me then they would have to allow others. This is where my fighting to make medical marijuana legal began.
