What are the effects of marijuana on people with epilepsy?

My friend has epilepsy and the other day we were talking about beer and cigarettes and marijuana, She said that if she smoked marijuana, she'd literally die.
I don't believe this.
What are the real effects of marijuana on epileptics?

    she will NOT die. no one in the history of planet Earth has directly died from cannabis!!!!!!

    THC relaxes the central nervous system, (which is what epilepsy attacks)… so here's an analogy…. epilpsy is fire, and cannabis is the water to help ease it!!!!!!

    however, i do not condone SMOKING marijuana, may i HIGHLY suggest eating it (in brownies, cookies, etc), or vaporizing it, as this is MUCH healthier on the lungs. after all, its the smoke, not the marijuana, that does the damage.
