Vivian Wilson is a young girl battling a potentially life-threatening form of epilepsy. Her family is finding few options to help her. In his documentary "Weed," Dr. Sanjay Gupta profiled a girl named Charlotte whose seizures were greatly reduced with cannabis. But Charlotte lives in Colorado, and Vivian lives in New Jersey where medical marijuana faces far tighter restrictions. Vivian's father Brian confronted Governor Christie urging him to ease those restrictions, pleading, "Please don't let my daughter die, Governor." Governor Christie says he will make a decision on signing a bill on loosening those rules tomorrow. Anderson spoke with Brian Wilson and Dr. Gupta about all of this.
