Moving for Marijuana

Molly Grantham’s WBTV report on Medical Marijuana for North Carolina kids

Watch Charlotte’s WBTV report “Moving for Medical Marijuana“, “Mom’s Talk More…“, and “Inside the Grow” by reporter Molly Grantham.

Both Maria and Liz are two moms of roughly 150-200 nationwide who have their children on “Charlotte’s Web”, a natural cannabis treatment for, among other things, pediatric epilepsy.  Early success stories of families who have tried everything else and seen nothing work on their children’s epilepsy, say it could be a miracle drug.

But, it’s illegal in the Carolinas because it’s made from marijuana.

Both Maria and Liz moved with their children.  Both had to leave their husbands for their jobs.

“It comes from cannabis,” says Liz.  “But children don’t smoke it.  It’s a liquid medicine.  We give it to our children like other parents give Tylenol.  And most importantly, it only has trace amounts of THC.  You can’t get ‘high’ from taking Charlotte’s Web. Having tried it now and having had to move across country to get it, I honestly feel this is ridiculous we can’t have it everywhere.”
