Man Plans to Wheel From Michigan to Washington D.C.


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - A man in a wheelchair and his son are set to travel to Washington D.C. in an effort to talk to President Obama.


Curtis Kyle, from Taylor, Michigan, has cerebral palsy and has been wheelchair bound his whole life. He's planning to travel to D.C. by wheelchair to speak to the president about legalizing marijuana.

He plans to wheel 40-miles a day, with the goal to get there in four weeks.

Kyle says he's making the trip in honor of his father, who recently passed away and was also a marijuana activist.

"My father is my inspiration. I'm doing this for every marijuana activist and smoker and user across the whole United States. I feel that we need to come back together and take our country back," said Kyle.

Kyle began his trip from his home at 10a.m. Friday.
