icon  08 Apr, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

Children born with Dravet syndrome – and their families – are extremely challenged, to say the least. This rare yet severe form of intractable epilepsy – also known as Severe Myoclonic Epilepsy of Infancy (SMEI) – causes dozens of seizures every day, leaving these young patients exhausted and anxious and with anything but a normal life. With few effective treatments available, the parents of these patients have had nowhere to turn. Some of these parents have turned to oral Cannabidiol (CBD) and it has positively impacted their children’s conditions. Cannabidiol (CBD), a very active chemical contained in marijuana – also known as cannabis – is a potential bright spot in an otherwise bleak medical prognosis for patients with Dravet syndrome. CBD has been shown to be a well-tolerated treatment that can reduce or in some cases, eliminate seizures associated with Dravet syndrome and other childhood epilepsy disorders. Some parents of …

Those who oppose medical cannabis have been known to state frequently that legalizing the sale and distribution of the substance would be unlikely to create any tax increase for states who relax their laws.
