Autistic teen’s life improved by medical marijuana, parents say: ‘He said ‘mama’… I’d been hoping for that for 18 years’
ELMIRA, ORE. — The issue of medical marijuana continues to make headlines here in Oregon as the House approved a bill allowing cities to “opt out” of marijuana dispensaries.
The bill approved Wednesday that would let local governments control the hours and locations of medical marijuana stores within individual cities and counties. The bill would also let city officials ban the pot stores from their area until May of 2015.
As the debate heats up across the state, parents Jimmy and Maria Ferris say marijuana treatment has dramatically improved the life of their 18-year-old son Kyle.
Kyle has severe autism. Jimmy said his son Kyle was unresponsive to most medications, and continued to suffer multiple seizures a day with very little change in his behavior.
