Epilepsy and Marijuana: Introduction
During a recent TV episode of Dr. Oz, a woman stood up and claimed that "medicinal marijuana" had stopped her seizures. She had been unable to tolerate the "horrible medicine" her doctor had prescribed, but thanks to marijuana she was now a "productive member of society," able to take care of her 6 children and drive a car. Following this TV episode, the American Epilepsy Society (AES) received a number of telephone inquiries regarding the treatment of epilepsy with marijuana.
