Marijuana stops child's severe seizures →

Charlotte Figi was having 300 grand mal seizures a week. The child’s doctors were out of options, so the family decided to try medical marijuana.

By the time she was 3 she lost the ability to walk, talk and eat.

For those who think Marijuana has no uses, imagine the pain of having 300 seizures a week and your body being so weak your heart stops beating. This is why I think the ban should be dropped. If people were educated instead of punished or condemned the quality of life for a lot of people could be increased dramatically. These types of strains are low in THC and lack the harmful psychosis inducing part contained in skunk and other ‘super strains’. 

There are no medical solutions for this condition and the Figi family were running out of options they heard about the Stanley brothers, there are marijuana growers and dispensary owners. They cross-bred a strain low in THC, the compound that is psychoactive, but high in CBD which has medicinal properties but no psychoactivity.

Today, Charlotte is having 2 to 3 seizures per month almost always in her sleep. She is walking, can feed herself and is talking more and more each day.
