Clarksville, TN, couple moving over medical marijuana

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. — A U.S. Army veteran and his wife say they are moving from Clarksville to Pueblo, Colo., in order to obtain the marijuana that helps control the pain Max Bailey suffers from injuries acquired in Afghanistan.

Jen Bailey told The Leaf-Chronicle doctors want to put her husband on opiate pain killers, but he does not want to end up addicted to pills. She said marijuana worked well for him until police raided their home on Feb. 25, confiscating 12 marijuana cigarettes and charging her with simple possession.

She said they expect to lose money when they sell their "dream home," but after the failure of Tennessee's Koozer-Kuhn Medical Cannabis Act, they feel their only choice is to leave.

Colorado legalized medical marijuana in 2000 and legalized recreational use in 2012.
