Cannabis Education Leader United Patients Group Partners With Founder of the Don't Punish Pain Rally Organization to Launch the 'Don't Punish Pain' Podcast

 United Patients Group is excited to announce their new podcast, Don't Punish Pain with Claudia, who is the Founder of the Don't Punish Pain Rally Organization. Suffering from Crohn's Disease since childhood, Claudia Merandi is a fierce advocate for patients in pain who need adequate opioid medication to live. Additionally, Claudia is a staunch change agent at the local, state, and national levels. This change includes law creation, and her bill protecting both the chronic pain patient's right to pain management and their doctors who prescribe was passed unanimously by Rhode Island's House and Senate. It was signed into law by Gov. Daniel McKee (D) on June 4, 2021. 

In the podcast, Claudia will give listeners a front-row seat to the national pain epidemic currently raging throughout the United States. She will share heartbreaking stories of addiction and death, exposing the abandonment of chronic pain patients who rely on opioids to function, as well as tales of greed and corruption at the government and corporate levels. Listeners will also hear inspiring accounts of recovery, redemption, and restoration of purpose and function. 

Claudia shared, "I am thrilled to be working with United Patients Group with the end goal of heightening awareness on the pain epidemic in the United States so that sufferers of pain will know that they are not alone and that there is help available."

United Patients Group is honored to partner with Claudia to bring awareness to the crisis pain patients face and to change the perception of opioid use in long-term, chronic pain treatment. United Patients Group and Claudia hope to serve patients who have chronic and/or acute pain, and their doctors who prescribe for these most marginalized individuals.  

Founder of the United Patients Group John Malanca expressed his endorsement of the partnership: "From the start, United Patients Group has always been about the patient. When my father-in-law became ill, my wife and I discovered firsthand how frustrating it can be to try and get the help you need. The company developed out of this journey, and from our passion for helping those in need. We're very excited to expand our services into the podcast arena with Claudia A. Merandi as host. We hope our listeners will find inspiration in it."
