HAMILTON - A long-time advocate medical marijuana passed away this weekend. Lori Burnam, who was in her 60's suffered from glaucoma and used cannabis to keep her symptoms in check.
She worked for the legalization of medical marijuana since the legislation was first proposed, and would travel across the state from her home in Hamilton to testify in support of the cause.
Co-worker and friend Chris Lindsey remembers Burnam fondly.
"I really enjoyed spending a lot of time with her. She just has a world of knowledge and felt very strongly about the cause that she really adopted as her own over the last few years, and I drew a lot of strength from her because of that," Lindsey recalled.
