Costa Rica News – A PAC party deputy presented the case of a child and a man who have had success from using cannabis oil for medical concerns.
A nine-year-old boy uses CBD, a component extracted from cannabis. He suffers from refractory epilepsy caused by Dravet’s syndrome.
This made him sleep 20 hours a day and take 124 psychotropic drugs. Now, with cannabis, he has just 30 medicines a day and has stopped having seizures, which he used to have 100 times per day.
A 40-year-old man who used to be a pilot but now needs to be mobilized in a wheelchair says that although he is sick he is grateful to be able to investigate medical marijuana for himself.
Soon the initiative to legalize medicinal cannabis will receive a vote from the Committee on Legal Affairs and then go to discussion in the legislative plenary.
