Transcript of Marijuana Citizen's  Comments and Council Discussion January 8, 2018...

     Lakota Craig sits between her parents David Craig and Kristina. Lakota attended the January 8, 2018 town council meeting as a child who benefited greatly from the use of medical marijuana in tincture form. Lakota will be 16 next month and has Williams Syndrome which means she has many issues that require medical help. (Williams Syndrome Symptoms)
    When her dad's turn came during Citizen Comments Lakota joined him and her mom at the podium, but not before walking over and shaking Councilmember Shrimpsher's hand. He sits closest to the podium.
    You will find part of Lakota's story below as told by her dad. She also participated in the Special Olympics December 10, 2017 in Kenmore, Washington. Lakota did so well she was the only local competitor to bring home a gold medal.
    When her achievement was explained to the audience and council Lakota received a hearty round of applause from everyone. (photo by Dixie A. Walter)
