Outrageous: Mother Who Advocates Medical Marijuana Under CPS Investigation

Outrageous: Mother Who Advocates Medical Marijuana Under CPS Investigation

(Derek Wood) - I just received an email from a pro medical marijuana group and the story is of a Florida mother, who advocates for the use of medical marijuana - as her son suffers from a rare form of pediatric epilepsy called FIRES, is now under child protective services investigation.


Apparently, the state received an anonymous tip that Renee Petro wasn't administering his anti-seizure medicine and instead treating his epilepsy with Cannabis extract. Petro denies these allegations, according to LadyBug magazine. 

“I’ve never used Cannabis medicine for Branden,” says Renee. “I know fully well that Cannabis would help him, but because I live in an “illegal” state we have never tried it. I have not broken any laws.”

Because the Cannabis medicine is illegal, the state feels the need to tell a parent how to raise their kid, how to treat their child, and what's best for their child. This is complete nonsense, as one state (Utah)  just recently passed legislation legalizing medical marijuana use for epilepsy treatment. Mississippi's House just passed a bill for a similar situation.

Why should any government tell and prevent a parent from treating their kid in how they see fit? Especially, in a non big-pharma ,medicine that is showing very promising results leading to many states jumping on the wagon for passing legislation as noted above.

So what's the hold up? Opponents say "it sends the wrong message," and that it will lead to higher crime but it doesn't according to studies. Medical marijuana could actually reduce crime, according to a Huffington Post story.

It's time to stop the drug war and the war against parent's rights in the treatment of their own children. Send the right message and urge your lawmakers to pass marijuana legislation that could help end the suffering of children and encourage the alternative to a big pharma medication.
