After getting out of the Army his family and him moved from Alaska to Myrtle Beach. His youngest daughter Harmony Newsom was unfortunately born with a very rare genetic condition called Lissencephaly. Currently she is using a hemp derived CBD product as that is what is legal to obtain and we have regained seizure control however they understand that if she was able to have access to a comprehensive medical cannabis program we could ultimately continue to improve her quality of life.
