Calming Seizures with Medical Marijuana

Calming Jayden’s Seizures from Ariana van den Akker on Vimeo.

This video accompanied a piece ran by the LA Times in September of 2012. It tells the story of Jayden David, 6, who suffers from a rare form of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome. Jayden takes a form of medical marijuana that is not psychoactive, which means that it does not give him a high. The problem, however, is that the type of marijuana he needs to calm his seizures is difficult to obtain. This story focuses on the determination of his father, Jason David, as he continues to search for the only medication that has, so far, been able to help his son.
