Rabbi Tatz…

Thank you for your shiurs…  We are caring for a baby who is 4 years old who has severe seizures daily.  He is on three different seizure meds, but they are not controlling the seizure totally.  He also has the Vegal Nerve Stimulator that helps tremendously.  His seizures left 100% for about 6 months, but have returned.  Are we allowed to give the Cannabis to him as an additional medication for seizure control?  His Neurologist and Primary Care Physician says no because of legislative reasons.  Wondering what your opinion is of this procedure?
