It’s ridiculous that government believes it has any kind of authority to outlaw a plant, especially one that can provide actual relief in a situation like this.
A 15-year-old Georgia boy was kidnapped by the state from his parents after they treated the boy with a plant, marijuana.
David Brill suffered from multiple seizures every day, sometimes as many as 10.
Finally, his parents had enough and learned that marijuana could be used to treat their son. The only problem? The state thinks it is holier than the Creator and deemed a plant illegal.
However, Matthew and Suzeanna Brill determined to help their son and went against the “law” in order to provide some care for him.
A lengthy commentary was provided on a GoFundMe page that was started by the Brills.
Among the details were that Matthew bought some marijuana and tested it out before giving it to David.
However, the results were beyond phenomenal.
After starting the marijuana treatment, David went for 71 days without a single seizure!
“For our son, it was a miracle for him,” Matthew said.
CBS reports on what happened:
Currently, medical marijuana is legal in 29 states and Washington, D.C. Nine states and D.C. allow for legal recreational marijuana. But Georgia has some of the strictest marijuana laws in the country. Physicians are not allowed to prescribe marijuana for medical use and it’s illegal to sell or possess it. But the law does allow those with a state-issued medical card to possess low THC oil.
“The only way he could get a medical card would be a six-year waiting list,” Suzeanna said.
So the Brills, frustrated with traditional prescription medication, took matters into their own hands. Matthew said he smoked the illegally-purchased marijuana first to make sure it was okay before giving it to his stepson.
The Brills were charged with reckless conduct after someone alerted the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services. The couple said they spent six days in jail. On April 20, David was removed from the Brills’ custody. That day, he had a seizure and had to be rushed to a hospital.
David’s parents’ custody was revoked and he now lives 60 miles from them in a group home where… yes, he is having seizures again
