Patients, families, friends encouraged by early results from medical marijuana

Whether it’s friends or family, people describe the changes they’ve seen in Jess Blake in almost the same words: They’ve got her back.

“Having her back after seeing her completely disappear is a great thing,” Blake’s friend Lisa McKhann said last week.

“It’s great to have her back,” agreed Blake’s father, Rick Blake of Grand Rapids, in a separate interview.

Jess Blake, now 40, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September 2014 after she collapsed at Esko High School, where she taught geography and history to seventh- and eighth-graders.
