I just watched Culture High,
A documentary film about legalization of Marijuana. This movie was a compelling
movie filled w truths about pros and cons to ending marijuana prohibition. Government does not want that. The documentary can tell u why.

Either way, our dear friend Jason David and his son Jayden both are in the documentary movie, also starring Snoop Dog, Joe Rogan and a few brilliant scientists (forgot their names ) sorry. Jason and Jayden helped save Adam’s life. They guided us out a dark scary time regarding Adam’s health.

In Sept 2012
I contacted Jason David.
The Davids shared their journey about mmj Info and how CBD had helped reduce or stop seizures Jayden’s seizures. He answered questions like: How to apply for a “caregivers” license. How to do this in a safe manner? He also offered MUCH NEEDED hope and encouragement.

in Dec. 2012 Adam was an official MMJ Patient. He had his first dose of CBD butter. He was on 44 seizures pills in one day, he could not breath on his own. Lets just say he was close to death. He went into respiratory failure too many times. He couldn’t move or smile. It was an extremely scary time. It was a difficult reality to face: Adam had two sections of his brain cut out, he had a breathing tube, feeding tube, a shunt in his head and HE STILL SEIZED! The CBD helped reduce the seizures.

WE HAD NOTHING TO LOSE SO fast forward to NOVEMBER 2014
Adam is still an MMJ patient but
now can:
Play baskeball (w assistance of course)
Eat by mouth- purred food
Breath on his own
He is down to 12 seizure pills a day
He holds his head, moves it side to side
Smiles
Will wear RX glasses
More alert
All this because of our ability to access safely MMJ.
IT TRULEY IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH! Politicians and negative opinions should have ZERO say so about how I ensure my child’s medical well being. If I would not have chosen to look out side the box, or listened to doctors and gave up Adam would be dead right now. It was not ever a decision we took lightly.

This medicine has saved my sons life! Please don’t judge those other parents for finding hope in this important medicinal plant.
And for those who have and will offer support..
We love u.

First, I need to thank everyone who has prayed and offered their support to our family in anyway. The past five years we’ve been through ALOT and YOU have helped us through. Thanks to all the prayer warriors out there!
Keep it up!

After everything Adam has been through HE STILL SMILES. Truly there has never been a smile that shines so bright! To know Adam is to fall head over hills in love. It’s a special kind of love. One that he exudes generously to all who BELIEVE. It’s God’s love as innocent and pure as it could get, its direct from Heaven.

I’m his mom-so blessed. I wish him a happy birthday so grand even his little Deaf ears hear it. I wish him/ pray him more hours alert, more purposeful movement, more play and a stronger immune system to protect him on more family outings. None of these things money can buy. None of these can be put in a box and gift wrapped but just imagine when they come true! Imagine how good Adam will look doing them!

Yesterday we took Adam to church and held a special mass to give thanks for all he has overcome. Family and friends gathered and prayed and after we went home to have cake and icecream, including Adam. He had a wonderful time. Thanks Be to God.
