Fighting for Relief: A Mother's Struggle for Medical Cannabis | Crista Eggers

In this compelling episode of Let's Be Blunt with Montel, Montel talks with Nebraskan activist Crista Eggers, who is on a mission to legalize medicinal cannabis in Nebraska. Crista's fight is personal—her 9-year-old son, Colton, suffers from severe epilepsy, and traditional pharmaceuticals have failed to provide relief. With a looming deadline of July 3, Crista and her team must gather over 87,000 signatures on two petitions to get a medical cannabis initiative on the state's November ballot.

Join Montel and Crista as they discuss:

Colton's health struggles and the desperate need for medical cannabis

The challenges and triumphs of gathering signatures for the ballot initiative

The broader implications of Nebraska's cannabis laws in comparison to other states

The personal toll on families fighting for access to life-changing treatments

Crista provides a raw, heartfelt look at the obstacles faced by patients and caregivers in states without medical cannabis laws. Her resilience and determination offer hope and inspiration to families in similar situations.
