The Face of Medical Marijuana


Tracey Gamer-Fanning is a wife and mother and greets everyone she meets with a broad smile and a whole lot of warmth. It’s really hard to believe she has a brain tumor and has been told by doctors she won’t make it.

Gamer-Fanning became a familiar face across Connecticut over the past year during the legislative battle over medical marijuana. She was successful in her push to get it legalized. Why? She smokes marijuana to help ease the pain of cancer.

This Sunday on Face the State, Gamer-Fanning will share with us her cancer battle and why she turned to marijuana. She dispels some myths she says critics have medicinal marijuana.

Tune in this Sunday at 11 for Face the State only on WFSB Channel 3 and let us know what you think?

  2. Hi Albert,
    I think you’ll be very pleased with the system that CT has set up. It’s probably one of, if not the, toughest regulated program in the country. I think we’re showing patients how to very responsibly use this new medication.
    Thanks for your comment,
