Our Mission

Patients Out of Time works to re-institute cannabis as a legitimate medicine for use within the United States. Cannabis, under modern research protocols, has been found to be effective in reducing intraocular pressure in glaucoma, reducing nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy, stimulating the appetite for persons living with AIDS and suffering from wasting syndrome, controlling spasticity associated with spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis, treating Dravet Syndrome, reducing the intensity of chronic pain, assisting with treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, and controlling seizures associated with seizure disorders.
