Medical Marijuana Helping Sick Kids in Michigan

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 28th 2012 by THCFinder

There are currently 44 people under the age of 18 with medical marijuana cards in Michigan. Three of them are even under the age of 10.


This has been described as controversial, but kids are put on anti-depression and anti-anxiety medication all the time. Millions of kids take ADHD medication every day. So where is the controversy with kids and prescription pills? Marijuana is a non-toxic plant yet suicidal thoughts are a side effect of every depression medication there is.


Consider the case of 14 year-old Cooper Brown. He suffers from epilepsy and his mother – fed up with the inconsistency and dangerous side effects of every prescription epilepsy medication they tried – turned to medical marijuana.


So Rebecca Brown is considered controversial. Yet her son has dramatically less seizures now that he is being medicated with cannabis edibles. What exactly is controversial about that?


Doctors say the lack of clinical trials is a problem, but when you are a desperate mother watching your child suffer from drugs that have plenty of “clinical” trials behind them, you may begin to wonder if the FDA has any idea what it’s talking about.


Rebecca Brown doesn’t have time to wait for the federal government and the FDA to stop playing politics and approve medical marijuana. Her son suffers daily, or at least he did so before she began medicating him with cannabis.


"This isn't something we entered into lightly," Rebecca said. "I've done a lot of reading and a lot of research. I have everything tested.


"I am not a pot smoker and never in a million years thought of trying this," she said. "But when your child is suffering and you feel desperate, you consider things you may not have before.


"Parents, when their kids are healthy, they take it for granted."


And when their kids aren’t healthy, parents take action – or at least they should. Rebecca Brown took action, and her son is better for it.
