10-year-old Amelia Weaver suffers from a rare and debilitating form of epilepsy, which can leave her with unending bouts of seizures. Amelia’s parents, Josh and Angie, knew they had to find a way to help their child overcome her struggles. When legalization was passed in their home state of Minnesota, the Weavers sought out medical cannabis to aid in their daughter’s battle. The results far surpassed anything the parents’ of the young girl could have hoped for.
Amelia’s story and her improvements since beginning medical cannabis treatment have made her somewhat of a poster child for cannabis patients throughout the state. After using the life-changing herb for less than a year, Amelia has gone from upwards of 30 seizures per day to rarely having one at all.
Having her smile at us and give us eye contact and want to be a part of what we’re doing and not having seizures all day has really been life-changing for Amelia. – Angie Weaver
I definitely found out that while I always want to continue fighting for my daughter that politics is very difficult, and I don’t really have a rose-colored view of politics anymore. – Angie Weaver
Their perseverance and hard work paid off, as Amelia is becoming more and more engaged every day. The Weavers are the true definition of why medical cannabis should be available worldwide – think of the number of lives it could improve globally.
