I am hepatitis c positive, I also have had grand mal seizures since I was 17, I am now 44. I got put on seizure medication and they got worse. So I took it upon myself and started smoking marijuana and stopped the doctors medications. It has been 5 years and I have not had the first seizure, and my hepatitis is not active now. I am a Christian woman but I believe in marijuana and being in the BIBLE BELT is a problem for a lot of people. Buying marijuana on the streets is expensive, and I live on a fixed income and risk my freedom everyday just to stay seizure free. Thank you for taking the time to let people like me tell you our stories.
