Recently, there has been a whole bunch of commotion pertaining to the legalization of marijuana. You may think it’s for the negatives, but it’s actually not. There are multiple people from all around the glove travelling to Colorado for this medical medicine, but you might not know the exact reason why they are doing it. They’re all moving to Colorado for the marijuana for one simple reason; to treat their incredibly sick childrens’ illnesses.
Jordan is the perfect example, she has had seizures since she was only six months old. Jordan’s mother stated, “Jordan had her first seizure at six months old. I had never seen a seizure before. The doctors said that it would probably be the only one and sent us back home”. Little did the doctors know, when Jordan reaches her 18th month mark that they were going to return. She was diagnosed with Dravet syndrome at the age of eleven, and the anti-seizure pills they put her on “took away her personality”. Her mother was quoted as saying “She didn’t talk or eat for two weeks straight” when Jordan was first introduced to the medicine.
It’s stories like these that open up your mind to the fact of the matter, medical marijuana helps more people than you would think. From old people to children, medical marijuana is truly something that should be legalized for everybody. If not for the sole fact that it helps so many people get through their daily lives, than for the fact that the majority of the population wants it to happen.
