Graciela In Mexico, Cannabis And Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

Grace is a little girl in Mexico living with Lennox Gestaut syndrome, a type of epilepsy that
comes with different types of seizures, including tonic (stiffening) and atonic (drop) seizures.

I spoke with Amy Case King, a marijuana activist who attended an event with Por Grace Por Todo in Mexico recently.

She had this to say:

Hi Jared. your shirt was a big hit yesterday at the event PorGrace PorTodos in Mexico City.

Por Grace is a foundation started by Graciela's parents to bring attention to the possibilities of cannabis to provide a better quality of life to children who have found no relief from traditional medications used for epilepsy

Amy Case King continued:

their next step besides holding the public education events is to help other families obtain the necessary permits from the regulating authority known as COFEPRIS for the importation of CBD hemp products

I can't thank Amy enough for wearing her safer shirt to the event, I hope to get some safer shirts to other folks who volunteer with Por Grace Por Todos in the near future!

Thank you Amy, and all the people fighting for Grace, and others who benefit from Cannabis Therapy!
