The Face of Cannabis project is simple. There are hundreds of kids benefiting from the medicinal properties of marijuana. I am the aunt of a little girl with Dravet Syndrome. Her quality of life could be greatly improved by using MMJ to control her seizures. I want the world to think of her and hundreds of others like her when they hear the words “medical marijuana.” It can, and is, saving lives of children. If you’ve never loved a child with a devastating illness, this is not something you’ve probably considered. Unfortunately, many don’t have that luxury.
My goal is to open eyes in an attempt to change hearts, minds and possibly legislation. Dozens of families have left their homes permanently and moved to Colorado after watching the CNN documentary “WEED” by Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Colorado has the strain of cannabis their children need. These families have become medical refugees in their own country. Wouldn’t it be nice if they could access the same medicine in their own states? Their home. With their families.
Others choose to stay in their home state and fight for change. They can’t do it alone. Please view with an open mind.
