As reported by CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta, medical marijuana may have the potential to treat several serious and debilitating ailments and diseases, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, glaucoma, arthritis, asthma, Crohn’s, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, and even cancer.

Furthermore, legal medical marijuana usage among teens is growing, as more families and doctors recognize that with respect to both efficacy and side effects, cannabis is an alternative to some harsh pharmaceuticals. In May, 2016 The Virginian Pilot told the story of how medical marijuana was helping a Virginia Beach, VA teen with epilepsy reduce the frequency and severity of his seizures. And in November, 2015 PEOPLE magazine featured a New Jersey teenager who won the right to take medical marijuana at school.

“For many young adults with serious medical conditions, medical marijuana may be a legitimate and beneficial option they may want to explore with their doctor and family,” commented Brian Cooper, the founder of “In addition to showing our support for the growing MMJ community, we hope that our scholarship creates awareness and gets people exploring the facts and evidence, instead of succumbing to misinformation and misrepresentation.”
