DEA Decision on Marijuana Spells Bad News for Those Who Use Cannabis Oil for Medicine
DALLAS CENTER, Iowa -- The Drug Enforcement Administration announced Thursday that it will keep marijuana illegal under federal law for any purpose. In reaching its conclusion, the DEA said a Health and Human Services evaluation shows marijuana has no "currently accepted medical use." That's bad news for Erin Miller, whose four year-old son relies on cannabis oil to prevent seizures. "To say that it has no medical proof that it works, my son`s 14 month seizure free today, so that`s huge to me. He`s living proof that it works," said Miller. Doctors told Miller to use cannabis oil as medicine to treat her son Abram's seizure disorder, and it worked.
