Cheryl Miller (1946 – June 7, 2003) was a multiple sclerosis patient and medical cannabis rights activist who committed civil disobedience at Congressman Jim Rogan's office[1] and in front of the office of former Georgia Congressman Bob Barr. During Barr's unsuccessful re-election bid, she made a television appearance criticizing his medical cannabis policy.[2] She and her husband received the Peter McWilliams Memorial Award [1] for Outstanding Achievement in Advancing the Cause of Medical Marijuana at the 2003 National NORML Conference.[3] She died on June 7, 2003 from pneumonia and other MS-related complications. Her friends and supporters created the Cheryl Miller Memorial Project (see External Link) to continue her legacy.
