Joshua Stanley of Colorado’s Realm of Caring tells the story of six-year-old Charlotte Figi from his perspective as a caregiver.
Joshua, along with his five brothers, carefully bred a strain of marijuana that could eliminate Charlotte’s seizures without any of the traditional side effects.
Charlotte is now seizure-free and enjoying life to its fullest. But there are many children around the world in a similar situation who can’t get access to medical marijuana.
In this TED Talk, Joshua Stanley explains why perceptions about cannabis are misguided and why children don’t need to get high to take advantage of this powerful medicine.
