    ...the law doesn't matter...doing what is morally Right is what matters.

    Parents Jailed, 15-Year-Old Kidnapped by Gov’t, For Using Cannabis to Stop His Seizures: https://thefreethoughtproject.com/pa...stop-seizures/

    Macon, GA – A teenager who suffers from seizures was forcibly separated from his parents and put into state custody, while his parents were jailed and charged with reckless conduct after they provided their son with marijuana to control his seizure disorder.

    Matthew and Suzeanna Brill say they let their 15-year-old son, David, smoke cannabis in a desperate attempt to control his severe epileptic seizures. The couple told the New York Times that their son was having numerous seizures a day and that the pharmaceutical drugs he was prescribed to control his epilepsy failed to work.

    Although Georgia ostensibly recognizes cannabis as a treatment for epilepsy by allowing certified patients to possess up to 20 fluid ounces of *low THC oil,* generally recognized cannabidiol oil commonly referred to as CBD, the reality is that there is no way to legally obtain or produce CBD oil without being in violation of Georgia law. Despite having no legal access to cannabis, more than 3,500 people are registered with the state as medical marijuana patients.

    *Even with the ramifications with the law, I don’t care,* said Mr. Brill, David’s stepfather. *For 71 days he was able to ride a bike, go play, lift weights. We were able to achieve that with David medicated not from Big Pharma, but David medicated with marijuana.*

    The parents say they informed their son’s doctors about using cannabis to treat his seizures without objection, but that his therapist reported the medical marijuana use to authorities. The call resulted in a visit by the Twiggs County sheriff’s deputies on April 19, who demanded that David stop taking the medicine that had stopped his seizures.

    *We complied, and within 14 hours of complying, we were rushing our son to the hospital. It was one of the most horrific seizures I’ve ever seen,* Suzeanna Brill told the Times.


    *Whatever the law is, it’s my job to enforce it,* Mitchum said *The fact is that, as of today, marijuana is not legal in the state of Georgia to possess or smoke or use for recreational use. And that’s it.*

    Reason magazine reported that *his parents are fighting to get him back, a process they say may take as long as a year. They are trying to raise money to cover their legal expenses on GoFundMe, where they are more than halfway toward their goal of $30,000.*

    They need to post all of the therapist's info up, name, addy, business name, etc... Sometimes problems solve themselves, just saying...

    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    First let me say I have compassion for this child, but as is usually the case, there is more to this story than what is presented in this article.

    The original article has an extremely anti/cop slant, as well as gives the impression that smoking marijuana was the only option available for the child to use cannabis for his treatment.

    Although Georgia ostensibly recognizes cannabis as a treatment for epilepsy by allowing certified patients to possess up to 20 fluid ounces of *low THC oil,* generally recognized cannabidiol oil commonly referred to as CBD, the reality is that there is no way to legally obtain or produce CBD oil without being in violation of Georgia law. Despite having no legal access to cannabis, more than 3,500 people are registered with the state as medical marijuana patients.
    The reality is that they could have gotten cannabis oil for him instead for allowing him to smoke marijuana. Like the parents in this article from 2017.

    Also it failed to mention that the father also tested positive for marijuana.

    The police drug-tested all three of them: Mr. Brill and David tested positive for marijuana, Ms. Brill tested negative.
