In Virginia, cannabis oils – often referred to as medical marijuana – are only legal for those with epilepsy.
Even that legislation is relatively new – just a few years old. Advocates like Beth Collins with Americans for Safe Access and her 18-year-old daughter Jennifer are a major reason why the oils are even legal at all.
“I’m incredibly proud of the advocacy efforts of my daughter. Couldn’t be prouder.”
Jennifer has epilepsy. She and her mom moved to Colorado so she could experiment with alternative treatments for her illness.
She tried CBD oil, but that didn’t work, but then she tried THC-A oil, and it did.
“It’s great, you know. I’ve got my life back.”
