So as the Kansas session is winding down and ready to close up shop for the next six months, HB2282 (in its amended state) is all that remains for the potential for medicinal cannabis in Kansas, and HB2282 is on life-support.

I'll never understand why so many politicians are so uneducated and easily misled when it comes to the issue of medicinal cannabis. Perhaps they are misinformed.  Apparently, misinformation is running rampant at every turn. Well, here are 131 legitimate abstracts from PubMed, dating back to 1968 to get you started. Here are another 16,800 links through Google Scholar on the subject of epilepsy and cannabis. By the way, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has endorsed it for debilitating illnesses. By the way, 23+ states have already legalized it for medicinal use.

I truly hope someone in Topeka can exercise some compassion for families and children, like ours, and advocate for HB2282 to have an available medical treatment option to potentially stop Mira's chronic, relentless seizures.
