It has now been joined by another articulate young girl, 12 year old Alexis Bortell, an intractable epilepsy patient whose family moved to Colorado to help her get medication years ago, but who now contends she should have the right to travel (and live) anywhere in the US with her medicine.
“Bortell found that taking a drop of Haleigh’s Hope, a strain of cannabis oil, twice a day prevented the seizures from coming back. She’s been seizure-free for nearly three years, but she can’t return to Texas.
‘I would like to be able to visit my grandparents without risking being taken to a foster home,’ she said.
Bortell decided to join a lawsuit to legalize medical marijuana in all states. The case was first started by another child, a military veteran, a marijuana advocacy group and Marvin Washington, a former Denver Broncos NFL player. Twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana.”
