A Mother Explains How Medical Marijuana Helped Save Her Autistic Son

Strange Medicine host Dr. Juan River talks to Mieko Perez, a California mother who uses marijuana to treat her 14-year-old son Joey, who has autism and Duchenne muscular dystrophy. At age of nine he was severely underweight and doctors told Perez that he only had six months to live. Joey’s condition improved when his mother started to give him edible marijuana treats. Perez went on to become an activist and founded the Unconventional Foundation for Autism.
