Medical Marijuana Helping Staten Island Boy +Video

Medical Marijuana . Staten Island

(WABC) — A teenager with a rare skin condition has settled into his new Staten Island home and it is now helping him to thrive like never before.

Dilgen is using medical marijuana, prescribed by a doctor, which relieves his constant skin pain and muscle cramps.

Thanks to the custom home from the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, he now has more freedom and comfort — including an elevator and a new treatment room for painful bandage changes and baths that take up to two hours.
