Earlier this year, we asked readers for stories about their experience with marijuana used for medical purposes. We heard from readers across Virginia, and the first of a series of films on this topic premiered on Monday.

Tracie Thomas spent a decade exhausting every option in her fight to get her son seizure-free. Yet, it wasn’t until she stumbled upon a story about the positive impact cannabis had on epilepsy that she finally found a glimmer of hope. The only problem - it wasn’t legal in Virginia.

Learn more about Tracie, her son, Caleb, & Dr. Paul Lyons, whose work ensured that patients suffering from seizures across the globe would be eligible to utilize pharmaceutical grade CBD.
