        Biography

          Rylie's face a tumor was discovered aggressively eating away the left side of her face and palate.
          After hearing this devastating news Janie dove into research. She could not deny giving Rylie the
          best outcome if it was a possibility.

          After seeing remarkable results Janie single handedly fought for Delaware to have a pediatric
          medical marijuana law and for it's pediatric medical card holders to be allowed to have their
          cannabis oil on school property. Both of these laws, Rylie's Law in 2015 and SB181 in 2016,
          passed with unanimous votes which is unprecedented. In 2017, Janie was able to reignite HB210

          process of how Qualifying Conditions are added to regulations for pediatrics, and it passed
          successfully in the last hours of session. Following this legislative change, Janie submitted a
          petition to add Pediatric Autism as a Qualifying Condition to Rylie's Law. Janie continues to this
          day to stay extremely active as a policy advisor, speaker, educator and consultant in pediatric
          medical cannabis in the hopes of giving families better options they may not have had before.

          Channels, Talk Shows, The Medical Cannabis Report, Beach Life Magazine, CannaHealth, and
          CannaTech. Janie's daughter, Rylie, has followed in her foot steps by creating her own 501(c)3 at
          the age of 9, Rylie's Smile foundation, which helps children with life threatening illnesses escape
          from their realities to relieve stress in the hospital, contributes to pediatric medical research and

Bioavailability and research will also be briefly discussed.


          Learning objectives:

          • The goal of using medical cannabis is most often to improve quality of life, not to cure
          • Besides finding the proper cannabis profile and dosing, finding the best delivery method for each patient is one of the most important objectives
