Sanjay Gupta WEED 2 Response
Aired March 12, 2014 at 5:00pm PST /8:00pm EST
ASA hosted a Google Hangout, March 12th at 8pm EDT, featuring AHP director Roy Upton, ASA scientific advisory board member Dr. Jahan Marcu 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.
