A Marine Corps. veteran who applied for a motorized wheelchair said his claim was denied because of his medical marijuana use.
Ron Hudson, 59, of Mayfield Heights served as a sergeant in the United States Marine Corps for six years beginning in 1974. He was injured while serving in Lebanon and later became wheelchair-bound due to muscular and nerve issues that make walking very difficult.
Hudson said he was prescribed several painkillers to handle his symptoms but nothing was effective until he tried medical marijuana. He later qualified for a medical marijuana card in Michigan.
