Family Reacts To MN Medical Marijuana Deal

May 15, 2014, 5:55 PM by Jared Ransom

Family Reacts To MN Medical Marijuana Deal

Jim and Heather Johnson have been waiting for this day for a long time because of what this means for their daughter, Luella.

She suffers from a disease called Dravet Syndrome, causing her to have seizures. The compromise will allow the Johnson family to go to one of the eight distribution sites and pick up medical marijuana in either oil, pill or vapor form. Hearing the news of the compromise immediately put the biggest smile on their faces.

"It's been a roller coaster. It's going forward and then it stalls. You think it's dead and just in the last 2 weeks it's really come back to life and accelerated and here we are today. Governor Dayton says he's going to sign it, so we're excited,” Jim Johnson said.

This compromise is something that Governor Mark Dayton does support and is expected to sign. We will have much more from this emotional day for the Johnson family coming up tonight on KELOLAND News at 10.
