Family receives first medical marijuana shipment for epileptic son

WEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A South Florida family received its first shipment of medical marijuana, Wednesday, one day after the drug became legal for medical purposes in Florida. Jacel Delgadillo’s 5-year-old son, Bruno, has a rare form of epilepsy, and she believes low-THC medical marijuana will stop some of his severe seizures. The marijuana for Bruno comes in oil form, and he will take it multiple times a day. Winter Garden-based Knox Medical provided the marijuana to the Delgadillo’s Miami-Dade home, their first delivery in South Florida. They are one of only a handful of businesses approved by the state to offer the drug to qualified patients.
