The Minnesota medical marijuana program completed one year on Friday. The authorities also expanded the eligibility for the use of the medical cannabis to a new group of patients.
Supporters of the medicinal form of marijuana celebrated the completion of one year and shared their success stories. Commenting on how the medical marijuana has helped her child, Beth Hundley from Golden Valley said, “It’s meant so much to our family because we literally have been able to see our daughter emerge before our eyes.” Her daughter Harlow who is four-years-old has Dravet Syndrome which is a serious form of epilepsy which causes regular seizures. Such seizures usually lead to developmental problems.
The parents of the child and Harlow became a known figure in the area after the parents endlessly lobbied at the legislature in support of legalized medical marijuana that could help their child lead a calmer life.
