OGDEN (ABC4 News) - Enedina and Michael Stanger just moved their family from Utah to Colorado so Enedina can get legal access to medicinal marijuana.
The family was back in Utah Monday so Enedina could be booked into the Weber County Jail on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge.
Enedina Stanger has a rare form of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a condition that affects the skin, joints and blood vessels.
"I have a lot of muscle spasms, my tendons are shredding because I dislocate so much," says Enedina Stanger. "I'm getting electrocuted all the time my nerves, my joints will pinch my tendons or pinch my nerves, then I can't feel my arm."
After years of experimenting with doctors and pain pills, she tried cannabis.
"There's nothing that can help that pain except for cannabis. It just relaxes the muscles and takes away the nerve pain, And I can't explain it, I don't really know, for me it was just a miracle, we had just been praying for something that could help me because all of these pills weren't working," she said.
She doesn't want the same thing to happen to her two daughters, who also have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
