Father becomes a criminal to give his 2-year-old epileptic daughter marijuana
Would you treat your child with marijuana?
Alex Repetski gives his two-year-old daughter Gwenevere oil-based medical marijuana to help control her seizures. The Thornhill girl’s epileptic seizures are being treated with cannabidiol, one of several active cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant.
Would become a criminal for your sick child?
While extracting oil from marijuana is illegal in Canada, new legislation allows the development of the medical marijuana industry. After the new law went into effect in March 2014, the Repetskis found a doctor who authorized the use of pot for their daughter. There was still one problem: Gwen couldn’t smoke or vaporize the pot, so her father learned how to make marijuana oil in his kitchen. He now gives it to his daughter three times a day. She hasn’t had a seizure since, he says.
If it works, why not use it?
