    I wish I had seen this early; I would have attended the lecture! I’ve been researching the benefits of cannabis for Epilepsy and have learned so much! It’s amazing how effective it can be for so many diseases; it’s a CRIME that it’s illegal! I have a son that has suffered from complex partial seizures for 19 years now and the negative side effects of the pharmaceutical drugs can be worst than the disease itself.
