Marijuana: Families with sick kids moving to Colorado for MMJ access

As we reported earlier this month, the number of children on the Colorado medical marijuana patient registry -- with parental permission -- nearly doubled from June to August this year, with sixty kids under the age of eighteen now on the list. This is the highest that figure has ever been, and it's due in no small part to six-year-old Charlotte Figi, a Colorado Springs girl featured in an August CNN special hosted by Dr. Sanjay Gupta that explored the world of medical cannabis.
