A Dose for Dominic

Directed by Ruth Gregory
7 MIN / DOCUMENTARY / 2013 / USA

SYNOPSIS

After struggling with many treatment options, a family in Seattle decides to give their five-year old son, Dominic, medical cannabis to lessen the violent effects brought on by his severe autism.

The average five year old can be a handful, but Dominic Leppell’s severe autism overwhelmed his parents, Tony and Angela, which led to their decision to treat him with medical cannabis. Ruth Gregory’s documentary details the problem and the solution. Were they right? You be the judge. A Dose for Dominic was a finalist in the 2013 International Documentary Challenge and has been screened in a number of film festivals and a PBS affiliate in the Northwest US.
