Epilepsy Foundation Calls for Increased Medical Marijuana Access

Treatments for epilepsy with any form of marijuana come with risks, as there need for better treatments for children and adults with epilepsy.

One parent may move across the country to live with a child to seek this treatment. The Epilepsy Foundation believes that an end to seizures should not be determined by one’s zip code. Our current situation as an munity is not acceptable. Families looking to access medical marijuana as a treatment are facing terrible decisions. We are here to continue the fight.
