Tonight, we have something really special lined up for you guys for the interview!
Remember on episode 40, we spoke to Joanne Griffiths, the mother of "Boisterous Ben". Ben suffers with epilepsy, and cannabis medicine has helped reduce the amount of seizures he has from hundreds per day, to just a few a week!
A really inspirational story from a mother who will stop at nothing to get her son the medicine he NEEDS!

She deserves all the support she can get, so lets make sure we give her a great welcome today See you all there
My girlfriend's son has Epilepsy and uses cannabis to stop his seizures. The so called specialists told her not to use it, as it could be dangerous, unlike all the experimental drugs his already tried and on, and the TWO brain operations he already had. so brain operations are less dangerous then cannabis apparently.
within 24 hrs of taking CBD oil his seizures practically stopped.
I am not allowed to talk to his doctors because i get a bit shouty at them about it.
I think there Hippocratic oath is being broken.
I think more mums should actually slap there doctor's and MP's until this changes.
3 fucking years and 3 prescriptions. how many other experimental drugs they offered in that time? IT'S FUCKING HORRENDOUS.
Fight The Draconian Cannabis law's..... Fear is Control..... Set yourself free.......Grow your own.
My eldest has Aspbergers syndrome & ADHD, he was 6 when diagnosed and we went through hell as school constantly complained that he was disruptive and refused to accept there was a medical reason, when he was diagnosed, first thing they told us we needed to get him the drugs he needed to calm down...he was always calm with us but we did as school suggested. We went to the same child physchiatrists we had already seen who told us, before, there was nothing medically wrong with him...they had changed their minds now 🙁
Before this, they sent us on parenting courses as school had told them we had no control over him, we knew something was wrong...
Then they told us he would be better if he took Ritilin and would work out a specific dose for him, this went on for 8 weeks with multiple appointments, they gave him the dose, he monged out and spent hours dribbling in a chair, we went back, they altered the dose...still dribbling, back again...after 4 weeks of BS, they then decided that a new drug, respiridone would be better suited to him, another 4 weeks of the same bullshit...
I blew my lid a few times as they would constantly tell us that we were doing a great job, whilst writing down everything we said...we go back again and this time see a different 'doctor' who tells us how we should be treating OUR son, most of the stuff he was saying was the stuff they had been writing down for 8 weeks, that we had been doing since day one. No one in the UK had a clue about ASD and we were the guinea pigs, or rather our son. I stopped him taking medication at this point and they were no longer interested until the school made an appointment for us saying he needs medication as we cant control him...I got shit from everyone for stopping his medication as this was Dr's advice...IT WAS ACTUALLY THE SCHOOL PUSHING FOR THIS as I am good at reading upside down reports 🙁
We go to the appointment to see a consultant who apparently knew his shit, written a book about child pschology and everyone kissed his arse...totally clueless, as all the paperwork and lnformation he was giving us was all US based, he kept banging on about medication and saying it was best for him, I disagreed and said we have no issues at home, its only when he goes to school. Consultant got all arsey saying that they were trying to help, I went ballistic and off on a rant that got security called, two little guys turned up with ill-fitting uniforms. They came into the room that we were in and just stood there...
Again, I had issues, now with consultant dick and two new dicks that shouldnt even be hearing private medical information about my son...I told them to do one before I did something I would regret, they stood outside...Dr was still trying to medicate our son and at this point, I told him to Fuck right off, my son is not your guinea pig and that we would never come back here...and we never did, got escorted out too ...my boy found Cannabis at 12 (strangely same time in his life that I did) and it calms him down so much as it does me...School was under the impression he was dosed up with Ritilin/Respiridone...we knew better 😉
Anyway he's in his 30s now, still smoking weed and in full control of his needs
Fuck the medical system, was as clueless then as it is now 🙁
@zn Bunch of bastards mate, I would say fuck the whole system. It's lucky you were switched on enough to get him off that shit, but unfortunately there will be thousands of parents who just blindly went along with it.
I'll need to go and get some medicine rolled myself after reading that, see if it'll take my blood pressure down a bit and stop the steam coming out my ears 🤣
In the corridors of power where the talks are in full swing
If you can't say it with flowers Then don't say anything
