Mother becomes face of Utah medical marijuana proposal

Proponents of a legislative proposal that would allow Utah residents with chronic pain to consume edible marijuana products have found a face for their cause.

Enedina Stanger is a Mormon mother who suffers with a rare genetic disorder that causes devastating spasms and common joint dislocations that force her to use a wheelchair.

Stanger went public this week to become a voice for others suffering in silence. She was arrested in October for use of marijuana.

Stanger is advocating for a plan that is one of two dueling medical marijuana proposals lawmakers will consider when the session begins on Jan. 25. The plan bans smoking pot.

A more restrictive alternative from two other GOP lawmakers would expand a program that allows those with severe epilepsy to use cannabis extract oil obtained from other states.
