On Sept. 19 at 1 pm EST, U.S. Pain will host its bimonthly webinar open to all volunteers and members. The first portion of the webinar provides an update from U.S. Pain’s department heads. The second portion will feature a presentation by Ellen Lenox Smith, U.S. Pain’s co-director of Medical Cannabis: “Why I turned to medical cannabis: An overview of cannabis use and activism.”

“The presentation is great for anyone who is interested in trying medical cannabis, but doesn’t know where to start,” says Lenox Smith.

Lenox Smith, who lives with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and several other chronic conditions, is among the leading patient advocates for medical cannabis. She has authored multiple books, frequently speaks out in the media on behalf of the pain community, and travels across the country to spread the word about the benefits of medical cannabis. She currently lives in Rhode Island with her husband, Stu, also co-director of Medical Cannabis for U.S. Pain.
