Three of five of the Campbell children inherited a disorder called Metachromatic Leukodystrophy, also known as MLD. The disease has no cure and patients experience slow deterioration of physical and mental function. Tori, their eldest, began suffering symptoms such as depression, mood swings, pain and mobile impairment. After two years she passed away trying to slow the progression with a bone marrow transplant. When Maddie began to show signs of MLD she suffered symptoms of depression, memory loss, pain, seizures, and mobile impairment. They tried a bone marrow transplant, but it helped very little. Her parents then resulted in treating her illegally with cannabis oil, the seizures stopped instantly and the symptoms improved ( Porter par. 2-4-5-6-7 ). In 2700 B.C., "According to Chinese legend, the emperor Shen Nung discovered marijuana's healing properties...1578 A.D. Chinese medical text described the use of marijuana to treat vomiting, parasitic infections, and hemorrhage" (Joy and Mack par.4). In other words, marijuana could’ve been prescribed to promote sleep, appetite, and digestion as well as to relieve pain (Joy and Mack par.5). The article “Medical Marijuana and Legal Law and Definition” defines medical marijuana as “the use of cannabis or marijuana, including constituents of cannabis, THC and other cannabinoids, as a physician-recommended form of medicine or herbal therapy” (par.4). Meaning that any form of marijuana prescribed by a physician for medical use is appropriate when treating cancer, anorexia, AIDS, chronic pain, spasticity, glaucoma, arthritis, migraine, or other illness that marijuana provides relief (“Medical Marijuana and Legal Law and Definition” par.4). The data specified in ”State Marijuana Laws in 2016 Map”, states that “Twenty-six states and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing marijuana. Three other states will soon join them after recently passing measures permitting the use of medical marijuana”(par.1). This data shows that some states have began decriminalizing the possession of small amounts of marijuana, and have passed medical marijuana laws allowing for limited use of cannabis (“State Marijuana Laws in 2016 Map”par.4). Medical Marijuana is a healing remedy for multiple health conditions with no harmful side effects unlike painkillers.
