For some children, medical marijuana can be life-changing. A toddler with an epileptic disorder, for instance, can be treated with the drug to minimize the frequency of seizures, thereby leading to a better quality of life. With his or her suffering reduced, the child’s parents can also breathe a sigh of relief.
Similarly, the drug can benefit children suffering from cancer and other diseases with elusive cures. Not surprisingly, parents and organizations around the country are advocating for medical marijuana legalization. After all, not a few parents have driven across states just to get the recommended doses for their children. Some families, in fact, have moved permanently to states where they can obtain legal medical marijuana.
