TEXAS: This week the Austin City Council will consider a resolution supporting medical marijuana in Texas.
Two council members are sponsoring the resolution, and an Austin mother says she’ll be watching this item closely.
Shaded from the hot Texas sun, 9-year-old Lance enjoys a popsicle with his twin sister. The peaceful scene doesn’t show his struggle to speak or his problems with sleeping and aggression.
Lance is autistic.
Lance’s mother, Thalia Michelle, believes medical cannabis could help her son. “It could help with his hyperactivity, cognition, focus [and] even speech,” she said. “This isn’t just about smoking for nausea and pain anymore.”
