Medical marijuana is legal in New Jersey, but it is incredibly difficult to access. Rivera's young daughter Tatyana suffers from a form of epilepsy that caused her to have multiple seizures throughout the day. The only thing that would help Tatyana's condition was medical marijuana. After a long struggle, Rivera was finally granted the drug.

Rivera explained that his daughter's seizures have decreased since she started taking the medical marijuana, and she has shown other improvements. You can listen to the audio from Ricardo's call and hear exactly how medical marijuana has changed his daughter's life.
