Stop making children smoke their medication, allow for the use of cannabis oil and other derivatives

Forget the stigmas associated with marijuana. Cannabis oil has the potential to ease the suffering of thousands of children in Canada. What many people don't realize is that many forms of "cannabinoids" are non-psychoactive with zero high. What's more, these cannabinoids have been shown time and again to prevent seizures, reduce tumours, and reverse cognitive delays. My daughter, and many more like her, can experience hundreds of seizures a day with some seizures lasting hours. Every moment of every day there is the potential that she could suddenly be taken from us from a seizure. Thankfully we have kept those seiuzres at bay with cannabis oil. We have a prescription from a neurologist and several options for a licensed supplier here in Canada. Unfortunately, Health Canada only allows for the sale and consumption of dried cannabis, essentially forcing children to smoke their life-saving medication. Please consider signing this petition, reaching out to your mp, or getting in touch with the media to change this archaic regulation. No one should be forcing children to smoke and no one should be forcing parents to make home made oil illegally in their kitchens. Thank you.
