Cecilia Sivertson stands in her office in Lynnwood, Wash., in this photo made Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013 Sivertson worked for eight years as a paralegal in the prosecutor's office for Washington's most populous county. She helped make sure people paid child support and tracked down deadbeat dads. It was a rewarding, stressful and sometimes depressing job. After her husband died in a car accident in 2001, she decided she needed a more upbeat line of work and joined a labeling business. 55-years-old, she has epilepsy and arthritis in her hands. About two years ago, she says, she noticed improvement in both when she started using marijuana. Last spring, she began making products infused with cannabis oil under her "Nana's Secret" line. Her specialty is pot-infused soda _ with the soda concentrate produced by a client of the labeling business. The Alabama native says she's applying to become a licensed marijuana processor so her sodas and other items can be sold in retail pot stores. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
