The Life She Deserves: Medical Marijuana in the United States

“The Life She Deserves: Medical Marijuana in the United States” is a new documentary short film from Brookings that provides an intimate portrait of Jennifer Collins and her family’s struggle to find a treatment to control her debilitating epilepsy. Because her legal pharmaceutical treatments cause severe side effects, Jennifer and her mother move across the country to Colorado to access medical marijuana. The therapy provides Jennifer and her family with the relief they once feared was unobtainable, but they are now faced with the stigma and legal uncertainty that surround the use of medical cannabis.
