In this photo taken May 2, 2014, Kari Boiter, of Tacoma, Wash., poses for a photo at Rainier Xpress, a medical marijuana dispensary in Olympia, Wash. Boiter has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes pain, nausea and vomiting, and says marijuana replaced prescription drugs like steroids and antidepressants what were nearly ineffective for her. More than 20 states allow the medical use of marijuana, but major insurers still don’t cover the pricey treatment for patients seeking relief. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)
