This is a powerful story about the real-time effects of restricting marijuana research.

Medical marijuana has no proven therapeutic value for autism. Yet this mother, facing dire circumstances with her autistic son on the brink of death, decided to give it a shot.

The result has been, in her opinion, nothing but positive. Although medical professionals do not come to her defense, stating that the benefits and risks are equally unknown, she rejects the charge that her son is “stoned”. Conversely, she posits that marijuana has balanced him.

Regardless of the long-term risks associated with a developing brain consuming cannabis, it seems undeniable that this option is preferred to death, which was a real risk for her son.

Watch this compelling story that only reinforces and hastens our need for cannabis testing.
