FAKE!  Didn't this girl 'die' at Sandy Hook?  More lies to discredit Great Orange Leader!

She tested negative for COVID but she died of Corona virus? Subby needs to chill. "Maybe" and "close enough" is not dying from the virus. She was a girl who had severe seizures her whole life so maybe that's what killed her.

Sean M: Let's also remember that smoking severely increases complications with COVID-19: https://www.biorxiv.org/cont​ent/10.1101/2020.03.28.013672v1


I don't think she was a big smoker.

WilderKWight: Opacity: No snark intended at all with this post.

This little girl's success is exactly why big pharma lobbies so hard to keep marijuana illegal. Between seizure control (both chronic, like her condition, and temporary post-surgery), and treatment for traumatic brain injury there is big money to be lost if a weed becomes legalized as a drug. As it stands, even developing a non-THC variant for this girl was illegal at the federal level since pot is a schedule 1 narcotic.

I doubt this country is going to wake up and realize they've made a mistake, but maybe, just maybe...

Where do YOU live? It's been legal here in Michigan for several years now; First as medical only, and now as recreational (since 2018).

Go after your state and get it on the ballot. That's what we did. It actually farkin' worked. Now, ironically, marijuana dispensaries are among the businesses classified as essential during the pandemic.


Read it again, they said federal level

I saw her featured on the original CNN "Weed" special with Sanjay Gupta. She had ongoing seizures daily and a CBD strain grown by some brothers in Colorado with no THC stopped them.  The brothers originally thought, who in the world would want a pot strain with no THC?  It ended up being exactly what she needed so they named the stain after her.  A sad ending to a hopeful story.
