If you have family or friends who have a child who suffers from the catastrophic disease, Dravet syndrome with life threatening seizures - watch this program entitled "Weed 2 ~ Cannabis Madness" researched and narrated by Dr. Sanjay Gupta. The information in this documentary is unbelievable at what lengths parents have to go to in the United States to offer their young children with relief from seizures in the form of medical marijuana (high in CBD) and may ultimately save their life.
~The second documentary Spring 2014
Irrespective of what you believe about recreational marijuana drug use, the information in this powerful documentary will change your life if you have a child with severe epilepsy, a loved one living with chronic pain or undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. Research needs to be kicked up a notch in view of the overwhelming evidence of the potential medical benefits of marijuana as well as to make sure safety and uniformity of any resulting products. Not doing any scientific research on the medical benefits of marijuana in itself should be a very grave concern.
"It may be a lifesaver for your child .... It's time to reform the system"
