Jason and Jayden David’s Story Takes Flight

The Los Angeles Times has followed up on reporting by the East Bay Express and the documentary Weed Wars, in a very thorough look at Modesto father Jason David’s use of cannabidiol to treat his son Jayden’s rare form of epilepsy, called Dravet Syndrome.

Cannabidiol is a therapeutic molecule found in marijuana, and the federal crackdown on medical cannabis dispensaries threatens patients’ access to CBD and the recovery of his son, David said. David is a Harborside Health Center member. The club’s leased property is being seized in federal court by U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag.

With 4,200 Facebook likes, 192 retweets, 90 comments and syndication across the country, Lee Romney’s story in the Times, illustrated with photos and video, is guaranteed to strengthen the resolve of those fighting for access to the life-saving drug.
