Traditional chicken, beef, and pork production devours resources and creates waste. Meat-free meat might be the solution.
Question for vegans/vegetarians: would you be ok with eating meat that didn’t come from an animal?
Charlotte Figi was having 300 grand mal seizures a week. The child’s doctors were out of options, so the family decided to try medical marijuana…
Charlotte gets a dose of the cannabis oil twice a day in her food.
Gedde found three to four milligrams of oil per pound of the girl’s body weight stopped the seizures.
Today, Charlotte, 6, is thriving. Her seizures only happen two to three times per month, almost solely in her sleep. Not only is she walking, she can ride her bicycle. She feeds herself and is talking more and more each day.
"I literally see Charlotte’s brain making connections that haven’t been made in years," Matt said. "My thought now is, why were we the ones that had to go out and find this cure? This natural cure? How come a doctor didn’t know about this? How come they didn’t make me aware of this?"
The marijuana strain Charlotte and now 41 other patients use to ease painful symptoms of diseases such as epilepsy and cancer has been named after the little girl who is getting her life back one day at a time.
It’s called Charlotte’s Web.
"I didn’t hear her laugh for six months," Paige said. "I didn’t hear her voice at all, just her crying. I can’t imagine that I would be watching her making these gains that she’s making, doing the things that she’s doing (without the medical marijuana). I don’t take it for granted. Every day is a blessing.

Oh, and if your job has anything to do with the defense industry (which is almost everyone in my city) you are FUCKED.
