How Medical Marijuana Can Help Vivian Wilson and Other Children with Dravet Syndrome
Last week Jim told you the story of 2-year-old Vivian Wilson who suffers from a rare form of epilepsy known as Dravet Syndrome. While this is something that is life-threatening, but fortunately, there is one ray of hope that may help Vivian's condition. The last resort is an edible form of medical marijuana that doesn't give off a high but has proven to stop seizures in children and young adults. Governor Chris Christie has recently said that he is not inclined to allow children to participate in the medical marijuana program. But if it helps kids like Vivian, isn't it worth giving it a chance?
Watch the video below and you can see the effect the medical marijuana had on one young boy in California who suffered with the same condition and how it helped him.
