I understand there is a deal that is great of, especially amongst ‘epilepsy parents’, following responses built in an ABC Brisbane tv news product from the evening of 19 September. The portion covered the story of a dad that is pleading because of the Queensland Government to permit their 8 12 months daughter that is old who’s got a regressive neurological disorder that triggers chronic several seizures, usage of medicinal cannabis oil while she actually is in medical center. Really a remark made with respect to the medical sector triggered the upset: “children in particular have presented in hospitals with comas and passed away from cannabis oil”. Epilepsy Action did some homework on this subject and I also share to you now the human body for the letter that i’ve written towards the Australian Medical Association.
“I relate to a news article on ABC tv from the night of 19 September 2016 about medicinal cannabis and kids with epilepsy, in specific the Peek family members. Reviews produced by you in this meeting have actually caused anger, concern plus in some situations worry in the epilepsy community.
