5 Year Old Arizona Boy Will Receive Medicinal Marijuana For Seizures

Many are often torn by the question: Should children be treated with marijuana?  In my opinion marijuana is a great medicinal option for children suffering from serious (or not so serious) illnesses; but should only be used in the recreational form of smoking by adults who are informed and willingly consume.

In this case, Young Zander Welton suffers from a genetic brain defect that causes seizures which can stop his breathing.  He has been having said seizures since 9 months old and now at the age of 5 has them on a weekly basis.  His seizures caused by cortical dysplasia, are also paired with autism, making it difficult for Zander to communicate.

Zander has already undergone 2 brain surgeries, a 3rd surgery for shock therapy and multiple prescription medication trials which have unwanted side effects such as making him more combative in nature.   His parents are hoping that CBD oil treatment will improve Zander's condition.  

“If this finally works for Zander and I finally get to meet who he is, that would be amazing. Because I don't know who he is, he's just a little boy that's trapped in this craziness.” - Jennifer Welton

One of the biggest issues the Weltons face here is that insurance will not cover his $300 per week marijuana dosage. They have been reaching out to family and friends via Facebook for donations.  I encourage you all as a part of the marijuana community to help or at least send your best wishes for their family.  Visit their Facebook Page here.
