Tune in tonight at 8:00pm EST for our Live Google Hangout on our #GuptaResponse

ASA will host a Google Hangout today, March 12th at 8pm EDT, featuring AHP director Roy Upton, ASA scientific advisory board member Dr. Sunil Aggarwal and others.

This newly compiled scientific information on epilepsy and medical marijuana comes as CNN correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta aired a follow-up documentary to last year's "Weed," both of which feature children whose parents use cannabis to help treat rare and sever forms of epilepsy unresponsive to medication. "Weed 2" highlights the plight of Vivian Wilson, a two-year-old who suffered 75 seizures a day, while Dr. Gupta's first documentary featured Charlotte Figi, a seven-year-old whose use of cannabis reduced her seizures from 300 per week to three or four a month.

Reaction to Leahy Hearing on Marijuana

Less than two weeks after the Department of Justice (DOJ) issued a memorandum on how it intends to enforce marijuana laws in states that have legalized its use, the Senate Judiciary Committee held unprecedented hearing on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 focusing in part on the details of that enforcement plan. Medical marijuana advocacy group Americans for Safe Access (ASA) hosted a Google Hangout following the hearings on Tuesday to discuss the reaction to the testimony.
