Father becomes a criminal to give his 2-year-old epileptic daughter marijuana

by | 11th, May 2015

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?
