Sandy Kaercher of East Coventry has a hope shared by a majority of Pennsylvanians. For Kaercher, however, the hope is very personal.
Kaercher wants to see marijuana legalized for medical purposes as a last resort to control seizures that disrupt the life of her 15-year-old daughter, Grace.
Kaercher is part of a group of parents advocating for legalization of medical marijuana. The group took their wishes directly to the state House of Representatives in January, asking for legislation that would give children with seizure disorders hope for some relief.
