Angel Thrasher is the mother of Dylan Moon, a 22-year-old who was born a micro-preemie or born very prematurely, at just 26 weeks. Dylan was born with hydrocephalus resulting in brain damage and initial frontal lobe damage, which caused him to have intractable epilepsy. He suffers grand mal seizures which damage his brain, killing neurons and further worsening his condition. Not surprisingly, cannabis significantly lessons Dylan’s suffering, but the iron curtain of federal cannabis prohibition creates arbitrary obstacles to Dylan’s quest for relief, as well as thousands of other Americans seeking to lessen their suffering.
