June 23, 2014 - the Compassionate Access For Epilepsy (C.A.F.E.) Texas coalition gave an informative and educational presentation to members of the Dallas/Fort Worth Legislative Delegation. The event was held at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, TX. Members of the Texas House of Representatives and Texas Senate were invited and the event was well attended by legislators and their staff.
Speakers during the presentation included Representative Stephanie Klick, who hosted the event, and several parents with children living epilepsy who would possibly benefit from the use of CBD oil. Other speakers were Paige Figi, who is the mother of Charlotte Figi. Charlotte was the focus of the CNN documentary Weeds 2 with Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Mrs. Figi, along with Joel Stanley, who was also a speaker and is the cultivator of Charlotte’s Web, are with the Realm of Caring group in Colorado and are advocates in helping other states pass CBD oil legislation. Donna Stahlhut, the Executive Director of the Epilepsy Foundation Texas, was also a speaker. Click here to view the presentation slides.
