VIDEO: Tulsa firefighters should have the ability to use medicinal marijuana to relieve pain and other job-related stress, says Tulsa Firefighters Local 176 Union President Matt Lay. "Originally, it was brought to us by a lot of service members that talked about being able to move away from schedule 2 narcotics and a litany of prescriptions they were on, using cannabis-based products," Lay said. Grant Miller, City Councilor for District 5 agrees, saying he supports medical choice. "I think it's important for our firefighters have an alternative to these hardcore pain medications that they're forced to take right now," Miller said, "So, if we have a firefighter who is injured on the job, is burned, breaks a limb, tears a knee out of place, something like that, they're going to be in pretty severe pain."
