A mother that has seen her child on a laundry list of pharmaceutical drugs says that medical marijuana has been a miracle for her boys illnesses. 

Vicki Trujillo’s 12 year old son Jonah has a handful of diagnoses. He suffers from ADHD, PTSD, impulsive mood disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder. The issues would show up in his behavior, according to Vicki, and he would act out in school by throwing things and cussing. Vicki even went as far to say “he would destroy a classroom”.

Originally to treat Jonah she turned to approved pharmaceutical drugs, half with their own abundance of side effects, including Risperdal which eventually produced life threatening violent spasms. She says that certain medications would leave her son like a “zombie” and once she even had to call the ambulance to wake him up when she found him unconscious, a feat that took them almost eight minutes. 

After those incidents, Vicki decided to try medical cannabis, as it was legal in their state of Colorado. 

Vicki now has Jonah on cannabis edibles and CBD oils and says that he has since taken a complete 180.

Despite feeling that there is still a massive, albeit misguided, stigma, she tells people clearly that her child is treated with cannabis, and tells Jonah not to be ashamed of it either.
