Great-grandma cooking up pot brownies

Arthritic Great-Grandma Whips Up Marijuana Brownie Batch
June 10, 2005 - nbc4.tv

94-Year-Old Disagrees With Supreme Court's Medical Marijuana Ruling

TORRANCE, Calif. -- Catherine Ballinger is a great-grandmother and an accomplished painter whose works fill her living room.

But in the kitchen, Ballinger, 94, uses a smelly green mixture to create what the federal government says is illegal -- marijuana brownies.

"I've often said, I don't care if it's illegal," Ballinger, a medical marijuana user, said. "Well, I'm not a dopey. I never took a thing. I don't even smoke."

Ballinger is in constant pain from crippling arthritis in her hands and legs.

"Oh, honey, I used to be very active," Ballinger said. "I used to dance a lot. I used to ride, take hikes, swim, do this and that. Now, I can't do anything because if I don't have a walker, I'll fall on my face."

Ballinger has tried various pain medications, but she says they all produced severe side effects.

Desperate to help her mother, Ballinger's daughter, Joan Kerr, sought help from a doctor who prescribed medical marijuana, as allowed by California law.

"A person that's ailing and suffering and going through a lot of pain should receive it and that is not bad, when you really stop and think about it," Ballinger said.

The news that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the right of federal authorities to enforce a national law banning marijuana, even in states with medical marijuana laws, frustrates and frightens Ballinger.

"If they were going through the pain that a lot of us do, they would pass it because they wouldn't be able to tolerate it," she said.

Ballinger, who worked the night shift at an aircraft plant during World War II, then at Lockheed as a technical illustrator, never imagined at age 94 that whe would be taking on a new challenge -- fighting the federal government.

Because of the arthritis, Ballinger hasn't been able to pick up a pallet kinife or paintbrush in two years, but like everything else in her life, she hasn't given up. She hopes one day to return to her painting.
