What if your child had dozens, maybe hundreds, of seizures a day? You've tried scores of medications but the fits that stop. There is something that might help, a plant, but the only thing standing between it and your child is federal restriction.
We are the Parents Coalition for Rescheduling Medical Cannabis and this is our story. A large part of it, anyhow. Though mostly parents of children with epilepsy, some of our kids have other conditions potentially treatable by medical cannabis such cancer, autism, Crohn's Disease or other bowel issues. We advocate the removal of medical cannabis from the federal government's banned Schedule 1 list to save lives and improve research.
Here you will see pictures of children and adults with debilitating conditions from almost every state in America and several foreign countries. They are being sent as postcards by the thousands to First Lady Michelle Obama from February 9th-February 20th 2015 so they arrive approximately at the same time in an avalanche.
Why the First Lady? In the past we have reached out to the Attorney General, the Health and Human Service Secretary and even the President himself to little response. This time we reach out to the mother figure of America, Michelle Obama, mom to mom. Our message is simple: talk to your husband for us. Ask him to remove whole plant cannabis from Schedule 1 so that patients everywhere can access this healing plant if that's what they and their doctors think best. Our objective: to meet with the First Lady's office to open up dialogue on this issue since she has such keen interest in children's health.
