8 Year Old Mexican Girl Will Get Medical Marijuana

Medicinal Cannabis Will Help A Little Mexican Girl

Grace Elizalde, is an eight year old Mexican girl, who suffers from epileptic seizures every day.  These "brain quakes", leave her entire body hurting and exhausted.  Her family has tried many medications and treatments, but none have worked until now.  

This is why they are now considering something that it is still not legal in Mexico, but that they believe will help their daughter.  We are talking about a marijuana oil, which has already been used for treating American children with similar diagnosis and has yielded amazing results.  

Unfortunately, as mentioned above, Mexico has still not legalized marijuana for either medicinal or recreational purposes and this is one of the reasons why there have been so many deaths and problems over the last few years.  

Thankfully, a federal judge in Mexico, declared that he cannot prohibit Grace's parents from finding, purchasing and importing the cannabis oil into Mexico.  This means that if Grace's parents can buy the cannabidiol, Grace might become the first Mexican to use cannabis legally as a medicine.  

Grace's father talked to the media and he stated, "We're up against time.  The seizure's keep getting stronger."  In the past, Grace's father has driven to Laredo, Texas, which is around three hours away from Monterrey, Mexico, to purchase some Cortrosyn, for more than $5000, only to find out that it did not work.  

This is why they are willing to give cannabis oil a try and we certainly hope that it works.  Not only because this would promote the legalization of medical marijuana in Mexico, but because we really wish Grace to feel better.  

Hopefully Grace's parents can find the cannabidiol products soon or maybe even make their own!!
