    So…the kid was living with daily pain that prevented him from having a normal day to day existence. The legal pharmaceutical meds had dangerous side effects and no guarantee of working. The marijuana cookies took the child's pain away, and allowed him to interact normally with family and friends and sleep through the night. As controversial as it seems, it seems that the medicinal weed is the best thing for this child.

    Yes, it seems to be the best thing. I would imagine criticism of one's parenting is one of the hardest forms of criticism to take. It was brave of this mother to tell her story.

    Brave indeed. I wonder how many other children out there are suffering in a similar way and don't know about the potential benefits of medicinal herb. It's important that this mom is sharing her story.
