Published on Jan 10, 2014

Testifying before the Kentucky House Health and Welfare Committee on January 9, Josh Stanley, a cannabis cultivator and founder of the Realm of Caring Dispensary in Colorado, told the story of a five year-old-child named Charlotte. The girl suffered from up to 400 seizures a week caused by an intractable form epilepsy. Doctors tried 18 different drugs to control her seizures but relief only came when Charlotte’s parents turned to medicinal marijuana.
