Moseley family continues fight for Medical Marijuana legalization

GULF BREEZE  --  The Moseley family in Gulf Breeze has been fighting for the legalization for months.
   
Their 11-year old daughter suffers from Dravet's Syndrome and has several hundred seizures a week.
   
Channel 3's Amber Southard spoke with the family today about the bill's progress
"The Moseley family is sick and tired of watching helplessly as their daughter Rayann has seizure after seizure.
   
They heard about Charlottes Web, researched and used social media to help bring relief to their daughter."

Peyton and Holly Moseley don't understand the phrase "Give Up".
They've watched their daughter experience seizures her entire life.
   
And go through horrific side effects from her medications.
"These medications just really have nasty side effects that come along with them and you kind of have to weigh the risk versus the benefits."
   
They quickly became knowledgeable about a strain of Marijuana called Charlottes Web.

"The fact that 94 strains of Cannabis don't have the high effects these high CBD low THC strains it's really encouraging as far as side effects."
   
The couple hired two lobbyists  hearing the bill passed through the House committee today puts them one step closer to helping Rayann.

"We look forward to the day we can have Rayann medication free, pharmaceutical free, and really begin to know her. Right now she's so sedated on so many drugs that we really haven't got to meet her true personality."
   
The Moseley's also took to Facebook creating Care 4 Florida a non- for profit page

And creating a hash tag for Twitter.
"I stand with Rayann"

"It kind of put a face on this issue in Florida and help the legislation see first hand these kids that it effects, so it's been amazing to see the support from our community and the whole state really."
   
"The bill still has to be approved by the House and Senate floor's before it's signed by the governor.
