Medical Marijuana Helps Stem 6-Year-Old’s Seizures

Six-year-old Jayden David violently shakes on the ground, his blue eyes vacant and then filled with searing pain. The video shows an unvarnished look at a seizure, something Jayden once experienced routinely.

Not anymore, says his father, thanks to medical marijuana.

Before he started taking a liquid, nonpsychoactive form of marijuana, Jayden couldn’t walk, eat solid food or take a bath.

He has Dravet’s syndrome, a rare and catastrophic form of childhood epilepsy. It has triggered seizures so frequent that 44 times he has been rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, his distraught father by his side.

Jayden’s doctors prescribed 22 anti-seizure pills a day, which controlled the seizures but left him immobilized due to the side effects.

“He’s in pain and suffering and crying,” said Jayden’s father, Jason David. “You can’t help him no matter what. What are you supposed to do? You have to do whatever it takes to save their life.”

    clearly marihuana helps Jaiden relieve his epilepsy, why is the federal government trying to put them in prison?
    the federal government loves to drug little babies with prozac, ritalin and adderall and sleeping pills just cause they miss their parents or because they cry, don’t believe it? look it up the federals love to give pharmaceutical drugs to little kids living in their foster homes, they actually get cash bonuses to put the kids on their drugs, cannabis heals epilepsy and this is proof, it also fights cancer, I sure hope the government criminals don’t put this little boy’s dad in prison and put him in a government run foster home cause the first thing they would do to this little boy is load him up with pharmaceutical dope until he’s chemically lobotomized, the government criminals believe it’s normal for them to drug our kids, but if we give our kids some natural medicine they want to put you in jail for life, absurd.
