"Med Joint Director raised the most money in Kalamazoo to fight Muscular Dystrophy"

What: Medical Marijuana Compassion Center featured on the yearly Muscular Dystrophy Telethon
When: Sunday, September 2nd from 8pm-11pm EST
Where: Televised on ABC WOTV Channel 4
Why: Because medical cannabis effectively treats MD symptoms such as bronchodilation and muscle relaxation. 
The Med Joint, Kalamazoo’s Community Compassion Center, will be featured this Sunday as the top contributor of donations to the Labor Day Muscular Dystrophy Telethon in their area. The yearly telethon is now known as the MDA Show of Strength.
Med Joint Director Kevin Spitler fund raised $2578 after being “arrested,” by a county sheriff, taken into “custody” at a local restaurant so that he could call friends to, “make bail,” and then was briefly “jailed for good.” This is the first time a medical marijuana dispensing compassion club has been featured on the yearly telethon.
“Some of our patients at the Med Joint have Muscular Dystrophy,” Spitler said, “and medical cannabis has been extremely effective in treating their symptoms. After bearing witness to how our patients suffer every day, I figured I could work a little harder at getting those donations.”
Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a group of inherited disorders whose symptoms worsen over time. All forms of muscular dystrophy include symptoms of muscle weakness, loss of muscle tissue, painful muscle spasms, contractions, and spinal deformities.
Many of Spitler’s patients at the Med Joint use topical oils infused with marijuana, a treatment that provides relief without the “high” typically associated with smoking marijuana.
“Our patients are experiencing pain relief, muscle relaxation, bronchodilation, saliva reduction, appetite stimulation, and sleep induction,” Spitler says. “We are dedicated to finding a cure for MD and we are dedicated to providing medicine and relief to MD patients."
Currently, there is no cure for any form of muscular dystrophy, and there is also little to no published scientific research on how cannabinoids may impact the course and progression of this group of disorders. Spitler says much more research is desperately needed.
The Med Joint is a non-profit, safe access medical marijuana dispensary and compassion club dedicated to improving the health and well being of our patients, volunteers, employees and neighbors.

Kalamazoo Med Joint Director Kevin Spitler will be interviewed on ROJS Radio LIVE Saturday, September 1st, 2012 at 12:15 PM EST to discuss the event planned above. Tune into Mr. Spilter's interview on ROJS Radio LIVE at the following link.
