Can Cannabis Cure Dravet Syndrome?
Charlotte Figi had her first seizure when she was three months old. It began after a warm bath, a common precursor to the first seizures in Dravet Syndrome. Within a couple of years, she was experiencing over 300 spontaneous grand mal seizures a week.
You may have heard of Charlotte’s story. She’s been featured on 60 Minutes, in a CNN documentary and is the namesake of a popular medicinal compound. The beginning of her story is common for children with Dravet Syndrome, a severe childhood disorder caused by a genetic mutation that impairs the brain’s neuronal “brake.”

Scottish National Party Supports Marijuana Decriminalization
Green bud nuggets begin to show purple hues as they mature on Granddaddy Purple cannabis plants. This all-Indica marijuana strain is known worldwide for its many phenotypes that include Grape Ape, Grandaddy Grape Ape and Purple Erkel to name just a few. The strain hails from the Northern Californian hills as it has for more than 20 years. It grows very well indoors, either in water, air or soil. It has a predisposition to be short in bushy, as Indicas will. A euphoric effect about the same as the Purple Urkle is produced, a devastating Indica. This is a great night time strain because its such a heavy indica buzz, with a very pleasant upper head body and warmth buzz which fades into droopy red eyes, munchies and complete pain relief and sedation.
Utah Governor Candidate’s Wife Strikes Plea Deal in Pot Case
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Hours after his wife pleaded guilty to misdemeanor pot-possession charges connected withtwo pounds of the drug found at their house, Utah’s Democratic candidate for governor is expected to talk about the need for a broader legalization of the drug for medical use to address the health issues his wife and others face.
The plea deal calls for a fine and probation rather than jail time for Donna Weinholtz, who was charged after postal workers found a small amount of pot she tried to mail to the couple’s home in California earlier this year.
Mike Weinholtz revealed the investigation during his party’s convention in April shortly after it began and said then he would push to legalize in Utah the medical marijuana his wife uses for chronic pain.
