What do you do when you have temporal lobe epilepsy and the cocktail of pharmaceuticals prescribed to you are not preventing the painful and frequent seizures and are adding horrible side effects?  If you are Emily McSherry, you google, "What else controls seizures."  And what do you do when you discover that cannabis is reducing your almost constant seizures down to one a month?  If you are Emily McSherry, you create Cannabis Forward, a non-profit dedicated to educating your community on the medical use of cannabis with the goal that everyone who suffers like you did can find the help they need.
