While sitting at her dining room table, Cathy Jordan, 63, of Parrish inhales a marijuana joint  held by her husband, Robert Jordan, 65. Cathy was diagnosed 27 years ago with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. She has been smoking marijuana ever since and says it has slowed the progression of her disease. Earlier on, she had better control of her limbs when she smoked than when she didn't. Now it dries out her mouth and keeps her from drooling spittle. It also helps her cough up phlegm in the morning. Most people with ALS die within 5 years of diagnosis, though some people, like physicist Stephen Hawking, have lived for decades. Cathy can no longer hold a joint, so her husband Robert lights it and holds it to her lips. He doesn't inhale he says because he worries that drug testing could interfer with reatment he receives from the Veteran's Administration for post traumatic stress syndrome.Medical marijuana is expected to be on the ballot in Florida for the 2014 general election. A petition campaign to get it there will kick off in June.
