Like millions of folks around the globe, I am a huge fan of The Walking Dead, AMC’s post-apocalyptic-zombie drama. Good friends and I love to get together and watch the trials and tribulations of Rick Grimes, Michonne, Daryl Dixon and the entire gang on Sunday nights. During interviews and specials it has always struck me how much the cast seemed to really love each other, becoming a family over the years while filming in Georgia. The actors, while it is impossible to know for sure, just seem like genuinely good people. It was great to see that Norman Reedus, who plays fan favorite Daryl Dixon, has helped validate my feelings by supporting young kids utilizing cannabis oil to combat their cancer.
$5 per entry and all proceeds go to help CannaKids’ pediatric cancer patients. https://t.co/YGvN8pxhnR DO A GOOD THING. XXX

So you know a little about the cause, CannaKids is an organization out of California that uses cannabis oil therapy to treat patients with serious diseases, with a focus on pediatrics. Their patients have cancer, epilepsy autism and beyond, and find great relief from their ailments using CannaKids’ oils. The medicine is really expensive though, and insurance doesn’t cover the cost. It’s tough year round on these families, and CannaKids is always working hard to raise funds to help them. A huge thank you to Norman for pitching in to aid these patients get the help and support they need, and Happy New Year to all!!
The fight to end the failed and harmful policy of cannabis prohibition is a cultural, as well as political battle, so support from prominent actors can help raise awareness for our cause. Norman Reedus lending his name to help children battling cancer helps these young kids and helps spread the truth about the medical benefits of cannabis, adding to the ripples of beneficial policy changes we are seeing across the country. Please, join Norman Reedus in helping Cannakids reach their goal and spread the word about this important cause.
