    Was wondering if anyone knew if medical marijuana is effective with canine epilepsy. Trying to get seizures down to just once a month and I really don't want to put her on the damaging hard meds to control them due to serious side effects.

My little Molly is the joy of my life, and I would never do anything questionable to her, but am trying very hard to combine holistic options with her medicines to minimize the need for hard core drugs in her.
