Holley Moseley - Florida Women In Cannabis 2020

1 – Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where you are from, where you went to school, where you live now? Are you a Florida Native?

I was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida. I now  live in Gulf Breeze, Florida with my husband and 3 children. I graduated from the University of South Alabama with a Bachelors in the Science of Nursing. I have worked over 15 years specializing in pediatrics and clinical research. 

2 – Do you support Medical Marijuana? How about Adult Use? Please explain why.

Yes! I support medical cannabis. My husband and I advocated for the “Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014.” Our oldest daughter, RayAnn, suffers from a KCNQ2 variant which causes intractable epilepsy and cerebral palsy. With the help of Senator Rob Bradley, Rep. Matt Gaetz, and many others, we were able to pass the first cannabis bill in Florida. Since then, my daughter started using a high-CBD cannabis oil and will be 4 years seizure free next month. We were able to turn off her implantable device (Vagus Nerve Stimulator) and wean her off all of her anti-epileptic drugs. She is now in high school and thriving! She participate in Special Olympics, Miracle League, youth group, clubs at school, etc. So, yes, I support medical cannabis!!! I have seen it work with my own eyes.

I wrote a book to share our journey – www.arayofhopebook.com
