Kyle Hall suffered a massive cerebral hemorrhage in 1996. The medical examination revealed a congenital arterio-vascular malformation. This defect was responsible for the odd epileptic seizures he had endured all his life without understanding why. Following surgery, these episodes were more pronounced and diagnosed as epileptic in nature.

Anti-seizure medication made Kyle very sick. He could not eat, digest, or eliminate food. When he tried cannabis, his stomach relaxed, and the seizures stopped. He was having lapses of consciousness more than once a day. He has none when he uses cannabis.
