Today’s episode highlights Autism and seizures. Research suggests that about 15-30% of people with Autism experience seizures. Besides headaches, seizures are the most common neurological disorder in kids.

My guest today is Gail Rand. Gail has been passionately involved in the Maryland cannabis laws and regulations since 2013 as a parent advocate on behalf of her son who has epilepsy & autism. She played an integral role in helping to pass the 2014 legislation in Maryland for the medical cannabis program.
