Children and Cannabis; News - Our own Mykayla Comstock and her parents were also on the same show! ... The show was well done. Oregon media has never gotten past the need to show someone lighting up or demonstrating their vaporizer so unless we start our own media campaign it will never change. We can start by not taking Noelle Crombie's calls. She is not helping us. We need to begin letter writing campaigns to papers, running our own ads, and having a press conference from time to time. Of course the lamestream media seldom calls on those best able to answer questions on the issue.   Visit: ... plus, The Ricki Lake show had the best presentation I have seen on afternoon tv of medical marijuana on Tuesday (1/9/13) ...   Visit:

Children and Cannabis; News - Medical marijuana helps stem 6-year-old's seizures, By Kyung Lah, CNN - December 10, 2012 | Oakland, California (CNN) -- Six-year-old Jayden David violently shakes on the ground, his blue eyes vacant and then filled with searing pain. The video shows an unvarnished look at a seizure, something Jayden once experienced routinely. Not anymore, says his father, thanks to medical marijuana. Before he started taking a liquid, nonpsychoactive form of marijuana, Jayden couldn't walk, eat solid food or take a bath. He has Dravet's syndrome, a rare and catastrophic form of childhood epilepsy. It has triggered seizures so frequent that 44 times he has been rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, his distraught father by his side. Jayden's doctors prescribed 22 anti-seizure pills a day, which controlled the seizures but left him immobilized due to the side effects.

"He's in pain and suffering and crying," said Jayden's father, Jason David. "You can't help him no matter what. What are you supposed to do? You have to do whatever it takes to save their life." Last year, he had enough. Delirious with fatigue and emotional pain, Jason David called his mother to say he wanted to put a gun to his head, just to end the heartbreak of seeing his son suffer. His mother convinced him to not give up. David turned to something he had seen on television: medical marijuana.   Visit:

Children and Cannabis; News - Legal Marijuana Is Good for Children and Other Living Things Pot prohibition is supposed to protect America's youth, but reality proves the opposite is true. December 4, 2012 | When Michael Saffioti's mother suggested that he turn himself in to the Lynnwood Police Department for missing a court date related to a minor marijuana violation, surely she thought the 22-year-old would get a slap on the wrist. She could not have imagined that her son would not return from the police station. Saffioti struggled with a potentially fatal dairy allergy, experiencing great anxiety associated with the constant threat of a reaction. To calm his anxieties, he was using medical marijuana. Although he lived in Washington, which allows the use of marijuana for medical purposes, Saffioti did not have a recommendation from his doctor. After a few brushes with the law over his marijuana use, Saffioti missed a court date, and went to the police station with his mother, medical records in hand to resolve the issue. But, after one night at Snohomish County Jail, Saffioti died after being served a lethal meal of oatmeal containing dairy. Even more disturbing, Saffioti had told the guards he was having a reaction and they did not believe him, leaving him to die a slow death in his cell.   Visit:

Children and Cannabis; News - Medical marijuana for a child with leukemia, published: Saturday, November 24, 2012 - by Noelle Crombie, The Oregonian | Mykayla Comstock's family says marijuana helps her fight an especially aggressive form of leukemia, keeps infection at bay and lifts her weary spirit. Twice a day she swallows a potent capsule form of the drug. Some days, when she can't sleep or eat, she snacks on a gingersnap or brownie baked with marijuana-laced butter. Mykayla is one of 2,201 cancer patients authorized by the state of Oregon to use medical marijuana.

She is 7. The Oregon Medical Marijuana Program serves 52 children who have a qualifying medical condition, parental consent and a doctor's approval. Like adults, most cite pain as a qualifying condition, though many list multiple health problems, including seizures, nausea and cancer.   Visit:

Children and Cannabis; News - Cannabis For Infant's Brain Tumor, Doctor Calls Child "A Miracle Baby" Medical marijuana is gaining acceptance, but could it even help kids? Dr. William Courtney has seen it happen, and on Friday, told HuffPost Live host Alyona Minkovski about it. Saying he was "quite a skeptic 5 or 6 years ago", Dr. Courtney continued that "my youngest patient is 8 months old, and had a very massive centrally located inoperable brain tumor." The child's father pushed for non-traditional treatment utilizing cannabis. "They were putting cannabinoid oil on the baby's pacifier twice a day, increasing the dose... And within two months there was a dramatic reduction, enough that the pediatric oncologist allowed them to go ahead with not pursuing traditional therapy." The tumor was remarkably reduced after eight months of treatment. Dr. Courtney pointed out that the success of the cannabis approach means that "this child, because of that, is not going to have the long-term side effects that would come from a very high dose of chemotherapy or radiation... currently the child's being called a miracle baby, and I would have to agree that this is the perfect response that we should be insisting is frontline therapy for all children before they launch off on all medications that have horrific long term side effects."   Visit:

Children and Cannabis; News - Qualifying as a Medical Marijuana Patient | Patients must first meet several requirements before they can gain protection under state medicinal marijuana laws. These usually include obtaining a physician’s referral, state registration, and staying within the legal limits on possession amounts and use. Some states allow minors to qualify as medicinal marijuana patients, if they meet additional requirements. Patients younger than 18 years old | About a third of medical marijuana states allow minors (who would otherwise qualify to use medicinal marijuana) to register as medical marijuana patients by meeting extra requirements. These requirements usually include gaining a parent or legal guardian’s written consent and agreement to serve as the minor’s primary caregiver. In this capacity, the parent must control the minor’s marijuana supply, frequency of use, and dosage.

Effect on Minor Custody or Visitation | Most state statutes are silent on the effect medicinal marijuana use might have on parental custody or visitation. However, under Michigan law, a patient or primary caregiver cannot be denied custody or visitation of a minor child for acting in accordance with the medical marijuana laws, unless the activities can be shown to cause an unreasonable, clearly articulated, and substantiated danger to the minor. If this issue applies to you, consult an experienced family law attorney in your area to discuss how such cases are usually handled in your local courthouse.   >>

Children and Cannabis; News - Medical Marijuana as an Alternative Treatment for Children | ... medical marijuana to treat children is all around us.

Anecdotal evidence supporting the use of medical marijuana to treat children is all around us. Videos on YouTube demonstrate the calming effects of cannabis on autistic children. The problem is that, even ignoring the DEA's recent science-flouting announcement that there are no medical benefits of cannabis, pro-medical marijuana doctors and scientists disagree about whether or not the drug can be safely used for children. Smoke is not the issue. One thing that is not an issue when it comes to children using medicinal cannabis is smoke inhalation. In most cases, edibles are the recommended form of treatment, either in brownies or cookies, though sometimes tinctures - distilled liquid marijuana - are used instead. The drug can also be formed into breads or butters, sodas or even candy, to make it easier to ingest without the risk of smoke damage to tender, young lungs.   >>

Children and Cannabis; News - Medical Marijuana Is Safe for Children - US News | Numerous cases show clinical cannabis is an effective treatment for illnesses in children. The courage and fortitude of parents who have chosen cannabis compounds to treat their children facing life-threatening illness have raised eyebrows. Some live in terror that their government will take their child away, since medical marijuana is only legal in some states. However, there are numerous cases demonstrating the benefits of clinical cannabis, which happen to threaten a very profitable healthcare industry that relies on conventional drugs, as well as political agendas. A 2-year-old spent a year in a pediatric oncology ward, endured 39 hours of brain surgery, received chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant, and radiation under general anesthesia for 42 days, only to be discharged home on hospice and morphine. The child's local pediatrician started to treat her with juiced raw cannabis leaf. Two years later, she is still alive, now free of cancer and scar tissue. A 6-year-old patient with a severe, intractable form of childhood epilepsy, was tried on 11 anti-epileptics, including experimental European drugs. He was finally placed on a drug commonly used to prevent seizures, but continued having 300-400 seizures a day. An ointment produced from cannabis with an increased amount of cannabidiol, a compound patented by HHS, has reduced his seizures to one every 3-4 days.   >>

Shawnee's voice is shrill, quavering -- on the edge of desperate. She clutches her 11-month-old son while trying to comprehend the situation unfolding in front of her. Her boyfriend -- her child's father, Aaron -- is in handcuffs. "Why are you doing this?" she pleads with police officers standing on the lawn outside her home. "Your baby doesn't need to be subjected to marijuana," an officer replies, in an audio recording made by Shawnee on her cell phone. Shawnee and Aaron say their son is healthy and nurtured. But she could explain: The couple have legal prescriptions for the marijuana in their home. His is prescribed for anxiety and chronic pain; hers for depression and anxiety. "I told them we had our cards, our prescriptions," said Shawnee, 27. "They didn't want to see them." Not long after that exchange, according to police video of the family's encounter, a social worker arrived at the home and decided to place the child in foster care. CNN is not using Shawnee and Aaron's last names or the name of their child because of the ongoing child protection case.   >>

Children - The Reality, what do we need to know? “Cannabis's accepted medical use in the United States is increasingly recognized by health care professionals and the medical community, including the Institute of Medicine.  Several medical organizations support legal access to cannabis for medicinal purposes.  A new medical journal released in 2001 focuses on the medicinal use of cannabis and cannabinoids.  National clinical conferences on the medicinal use of cannabis have been held in the United States in 2000 and 2002 and are scheduled to continue on a bi-annual basis.  Most importantly, data on the number of physicians currently recommending therapeutic marijuana use to their patients demonstrate its acceptance by the medical community in the United States.

A considerable number of organizations representing health care professionals, the medical community, and the general public support granting greater access to medical cannabis for patients in need and recognizing explicitly marijuana’s medical use both in the United States and in the international community.”  See more at:

During my annual physical, my doctor noticed that my PSA, or prostate- specific antigen, score, which can be an indicator of prostate cancer, had risen since the previous year. He wanted me to see an urologist for some tests— namely, a biopsy—to see if I had any signs of prostate cancer. The test came back positive. My initial reaction after hearing the diagnosis was one of panic and anger. I was mad that this was happening to me, but then I made the decision that I had to do something about it. I wasn’t sure about continuing treatment with the urologist I’d seen near my home outside of Hartford, Connecticut. My hesitation was not to do with his medical expertise, but with the feeling he was not speaking to me as a whole person. So I ended his service as a physician with me. During my search for a new doctor, my sister, who works as a nurse, told me about cannabis oil, so we decided to give it a try, we order it on line through, phoenixtears_rickcannabis@ou, and it was delivered to us, after using the cannabis oil for a month we went for test and found out that the cancer cells was reducing, i just want to let the world know that am free from cancer, and also my advice to dose who are fighting cancerous disease, please be proactive to treatment, do not wait till it get worst before seeking solution, their is absolute cure for cancer.

"Can Cannabis Cure Autism? We Don’t Know, But It’s a Question Worth Asking; Cannabis already helping children with autism - Los Angeles, CA, January 19th, 2016 | AutismOne, the world’s largest and most comprehensive autism conference, is delighted to announce a medical cannabis track for parents and professionals. The conference will be held May 25–29, 2016, at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel, Rosemont, IL.

Of tremendous interest is a scheduled presentation by Dr. Judy Mikovits titled “Can Cannabis Cure Autism? We Don’t Know, But It’s a Question Worth Asking.” Dr. Mikovits, whose long and distinguished career in immune dysfunction and retrovirology said, “Given the potential to mitigate human suffering and lost potential, not only is cannabis as a cure for autism a question worth asking, it is criminal not to do so.” The Endocannabinoid/Cannabis Medicine track features speakers including John Hicks, MD; Christopher Shade, PhD; Jesse Stanley; Tracy Fritz, MD; Christian Bogner, MD; Brandie Cross, PhD; and Fran Kendall, MD. There is also an Endocannabinoid Medicine Certificate Seminar for professionals and a Medical Cannabis Panel featuring many of the leading advocates from around the country.

“Cannabis and hemp have already proven to be extremely effective for seizures and sleep disorders for children with autism,” said Dr. Hicks. “The healing properties of both have only begun to be investigated.” Ed Arranga, the president of AutismOne, stated, “Autism is not a psychological disorder or a genetic defect. Autism is an umbrella term covering a collection of chronic comorbid conditions, including abnormal gut flora, allergies, seizures, arthritis neurological sequelae, asthma, autonomic dysfunction, chronic rubella arthritis, colitis, ear infections, eczema, immune dysregulation, incontinence, leaky gut, Lyme disease, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), sleep disorders, mitochondrial dysfunction, neuroinflammation, oxidative stress, PANDAS (pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcus), rheumatoid arthritis, severe headaches/migraines, and subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE).”

As Professor Raphael Mechoulam has noted, “It is believed that because endocannabinoid receptors are found throughout the brain and in every major organ of the body is one reason that cannabis treats so many varied illnesses. Countering the chronic comorbid conditions in children with autism, are cannabinoid’s medical properties, which include acting as an antiemetic, anticonvulsant, antipsychotic, anti- inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-tumoral, anxiolytic, and anti-depressant. “It’s an exciting time,” continued Arranga. “For decades, truthful and accurate information about cannabis and autism has been the exception. Now, finally, the medical benefits of cannabis are being recognized, and children with autism are getting better. Ironically, two communities that were written off are coming together to help each other.”

" COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- She's a 5-year-old girl living in a rented house in an eastern subdivision of Colorado Springs in the shadow of Pikes Peak. And she's in Colorado because her parents fear that if they were living instead back home in Crosby, Texas, the kindergartner might be considered a felon. Hannah Loew, a child who suffers from a severe form of epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome, is among dozens who have moved to Colorado to receive higher concentrated doses of marijuana, or cannabis oil, than their home states will allow.

Hannah has suffered multiple seizures daily all her life, and pharmaceutical remedies have never proven completely effective. So, a year and a half ago, Amber and Paul Loew and their three children loaded everything they own into a moving van and moved to Colorado Springs. "We left everything," said Amber Loew, so they could legally obtain cannabis oil they hoped would give Hannah a better quality of life. >> "

"9-Year-Old Girl's Death Shines Light On Debate - New York -- Drug reform advocates across New York state are demanding emergency access to medical marijuana for critically ill patients after a 9-year-old girl who suffered from debilitating seizures died last week due to complications with her disorder. Anna Conte, the child whose family has been at the center of New York's medical marijuana debate for months, had a rare condition called Dravet Syndrome that caused her to experience as many as hundreds of crippling seizures every day. Children with similar conditions have successfully treated their symptoms with cannabis in states that have legalized the drug for medicinal use.

New York lawmakers passed a medical marijuana bill last month, but the law won't go into effect for another year and a half. Since its passage, two other children with seizure disorders similar to Conte's have also died. Advocates say these tragedies exemplify the urgent need to implement the law, and are pressuring legislators to speed up the process so terminally ill patients will be able to access medical cannabis sooner than 18 months from now. "Several more children are likely to die waiting for New York to implement its medical marijuana program," Judy Netherland, a spokesperson for the Drug Policy Alliance, said in a statement Tuesday. "While not all of these deaths can be prevented by medical marijuana, we have a moral obligation to make this medicine available as soon as possible."

New York's medical marijuana law came to fruition after years of resistance from both conservative state lawmakers and Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Conte's mother, Wendy, repeatedly lobbied legislators on behalf of her daughter, and her family's story is largely credited for ultimately getting the bill to pass. "Her courage, and the courage of her family, directly led to my sponsorship of legalized medical marijuana in New York," said State Sen. Mark Grisanti (R-Buffalo), one of the first Republican lawmakers to publicly support the medical cannabis bill, in a statement following Conte's passing. "She was a courageous little girl, who suffered as no child ever should."

Strains of medical marijuana that are high in cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive ingredient that doesn't cause users to feel "high," have proven extremely effective in treating seizure disorders. Rather than smoking, patients ingest the drug in pill or liquid form, making it accessible for young people. As a result, families are flocking to states like Colorado, where a special strain of cannabis known as "Charlotte's Web" has been used successfully by hundreds of children, and California, where kids are experiencing the benefits of similar treatments. (Conte's own family had been in the process of relocating to Colorado from Buffalo, New York, before New York's medical marijuana bill passed.)

Doctors who have used high- cannabidiol medical marijuana on their young patients have marveled at the drug's efficacy. "It's completely remarkable," Colorado-based Dr. Margaret Gedde told The Huffington Post earlier this year. One of Gedde's patients, 10- year-old Zaki Jackson, used to endure thousands of seizures every day. He had been prescribed 17 different pharmaceutical medications, which caused side effects like weight gain and insomnia but failed to stop the seizures. He then tried the "Charlotte's Web" strain of cannabis, and has been seizure-free since beginning his medical marijuana treatment more than a year ago.

"He's now able to start developing as a normal child. He's a delightful, charming kid," Gedde said. "Before that he couldn't even be in contact with people. It was a dramatic, complete change." Success stories like Jackson's have inspired other states to follow suit. In recent months, similar efforts have gained momentum even in conservative states: Georgia is exploring using medical marijuana in clinical trials to treat seizure disorders, and Florida passed a limited-access cannabis law earlier this month.

Through her grief, Wendy Conte vows to continue to fight on behalf of other sick children in New York, joining Judy Netherland's call for lawmakers to establish an emergency access program for patients with chronic conditions. "They can figure out a way to get this done," she told the Buffalo News. "If they truly want to help these children, they'll find a way." >> "

"Subject: MAPS: Mellow Moms: Marijuana Babies Nearly Twice as Likely to Survive - -

A study published in the July 1, 1997 issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics examined 2,964 infants for fatal outcomes during their first two years of life.

Forty-four percent of the children tested positive for drugs targeted by the DEA, including 30.5 percent for cocaine, 20.2 percent for opiates, and 11.4 percent for cannabis. Strikingly, cannabis not only had the lowest infant mortality rate, but at 8.9 deaths per 1,000 births, it ranked considerably lower than babies who did not test positive for any drugs. Babies who pissed clean actually had 15.7 deaths per 1,000 births. Cannabis babies had nearly half the mortality rate.

Incidentally, crack babies had 17.7 deaths per 1,000 births, and those on the junk had 18.4 deaths per 1,000 births. Even the hard stuff caused only a slightly higher incident of death.

And here's a link to the paper mentioned in the article: Mortality Within the First 2 Years in Infants Exposed to Cocaine, Opiate, or Cannabinoid During Gestation - Objective. To determine the mortality rate, during the first 2 years of life, in infants who were exposed to cocaine, opiate, or cannabinoid during gestation. "

"Hey all, glad to see Mykayla doing well but I thought I might offer these comments:

The report stated that her doctor would not grant an interview or prescribe marijuana for her to use which is probably accurate as it can't be prescribed. But they then said "the dispensary in Portland wrote the prescription, which is perfectly legal." ( 8:20 - 8:35) They also say her dad has "a dispensary card that allows him to be the delivery agent of medical marijuana." (8:40) What does that even mean? I hope one day the reporters will get it right as I continue to see reports misstating the laws, reporting things are legal when they are not, and generally offering inaccurate information. I also hope those being interviewed will get their facts straight. Reporters may misquote us some of the time, but if we stay accurate, we make their job of getting accurate info out to the public, easier and factual.

VICE's Weediquette came to Oregon to Discuss Brave Mykayla's Cannabis treatment with us. We had an awesome time and would love to share the episode with you all. Just go to - "Medical marijuana is legal in 20 states and the District of Columbia, but there are still use cases that are very controversial, like medical marijuana for children. Some claim it's a wonder drug for epilepsy, severe autism, and even to quell the harsh side effects of chemotherapy, while others decry pumping marijuana into still-growing bodies. We went to the small town of Pendleton, Oregon, where medical marijuana is legal, to visit Mykayla Comstock, an eight- year-old leukemia patient who takes massive amounts of weed to treat her illness. Her family, and many people we met along the way, believe not only in the palliative aspects of the drug, but also in marijuana's curative effect-that pot can literally shrink tumors." - "

" Sierra Riddle Stops Medical Marijuana Treatment, Returns To Chemo For Son's Cancer After Human Services Gets Involved | A mother who stirred up a heated debate about parental rights when she chose medical marijuana over chemo to treat her 3-year-old son's cancer, has had to resume chemotherapy treatments after the state intervened.

Sierra Riddle made headlines recently for moving to Colorado, where medical and recreational marijuana is legal, to try and help her son Landon battle Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) with a cannabis oil and a strain of medical marijuana called Charlotte's Web grown in the state. Shortly after she began the medical marijuana treatment however, Riddle said a case worker with Human Services began investigating her when a local doctor reported her for refusing Landon's chemotherapy treatments.

“They are not only forcing me to do something against my will as a parent, they are forcing me to make my child sick,” Riddle told CBS4 News. Landon's grandma Wendy Riddle maintains a Facebook page called "Offer Hope for Landon," where she and Landon's family can post updates about his treatment. - "

" Chris Christie Signs Medical Marijuana Bill, Increasing Access For Children | NEWARK, New Jersey, Sept 11 (Reuters) - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed a bill on Wednesday allowing sick children greater access to medical marijuana, weeks after saying he would do so if the state legislature agreed to revisions. The revisions to the bill, nicknamed "pot for tots," required that at least two doctors, including a pediatrician, approve the treatment and tightened the language to ensure that only minors could get access to edible forms of marijuana besides lozenges.

"I'm pleased the legislature accepted my recommendations so that suffering children can get the treatment they need," said Christie, seen as a likely 2016 contender for the Republican presidential nomination. "This new law will help sick kids access the program while also keeping in place appropriate safeguards." The New Jersey state Assembly approved the legislative changes on Monday, after the state Senate voted to approve the revised bill in mid- August.

Advocates for medical marijuana said they were pleased by the signing and claimed credit for a pressure campaign that they said prompted Christie's move to sign the bill. - marijuana_n_3909162.html?utm_hp_ref=medical-marijuana "

" Medical Marijuana Treatment Of Pediatric Epilepsy Attracts More Parents To Colorado | A small faction of parents calling themselves marijuana "refugees" are heading to Colorado in order to obtain medical marijuana for their children who suffer from epilepsy. According to a recent report by The Colorado Springs Gazette, parents of children suffering from severe epilepsy are becoming more drawn to the apparent success stories of children whose seizures are being curbed by medical marijuana.

In June there were only 35 kids under the age of 18 on the Colorado patient registry, but as of August that number rose to 60. Medical marijuana is legal for minors in the state and in at least 15 states and the District of Columbia, as long as they have some form of parental consent. The increase of patients in August coincided with the airing of Dr. Sanjay Gupta's CNN documentary "WEED" which featured the medical marijuana success story of 6-year-old Charlotte Figi. Charlotte was diagnosed with a rare disorder called Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of prolonged seizures that begin in infancy and can result in death. The young girl was having over 300 tonic-clonic seizures a week and her mother Paige Figi said the family had "reached the end of the road" with pharmaceutical drugs for her, so they began to consider cannabis. - "

" Mom Chooses Medical Marijuana Over Chemo As Treatment For 3-Year-Old Son's Cancer | One year ago, 3-year- old Landon Riddle was diagnosed with leukemia. Under doctors' orders, his mother Sierra Riddle began treatment for her young son: aggressive chemotherapy and radiation.

But while still living in Utah, Sierra watched her little boy become violently ill from the chemotherapy -- Landon suffered nerve-damage in his legs, nausea that led to vomiting dozens of times a day, intense pain and at one point went 25 days without eating following the treatment, according to CNN. "Around the clock, he was usually on liquid morphine, Ativan, Promethexane," Sierra told CNN back in July. "And it just really didn't seem to be helping."

Feeling like her family "didn't have anything left to lose" she looked into medical marijuana treatment. She moved her family to Colorado Springs, Colo. to benefit from the state's marijuana laws and started to give Landon liquid forms of both Cannabidiol, or CBD, and Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC. "Within four weeks we could see the improvement," Sierra told KRDO. Users of medical marijuana have said that THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that is associated with the "high" sensation, can also be an effective pain killer as well as inhibit feelings of nausea. - "

" Smoke A Joint, Lose Your Kids | You'd think that in the age of medical pot, legal pot in Colorado and Washington, and a majority of Americans in favor of legalizing the drug, we'd at least have ended the 1980s practice of snatching kids from pot-smoking parents. You'd be wrong. The recent case of Baby Bree underscores that parents can lose custody of their children even if they legally grow and consume marijuana in their home. A referee recently ruled that Maria and Gordon Steven Green were subjecting their six- month-old baby to possible danger because of grass.

“They were worried about the possibility of break-ins, armed robbery that kind of thing,” mother Green explains. “He (the referee) put that out as a possibility and that warranted immediate danger for the child.” The Greens and their attorney contend they had a legal right to have the drug since she is a licensed caregiver and father Green has epilepsy, but Child Protective Service workers, charged with protecting children from abuse, saw it differently and petitioned for the right to remove the baby from the home. In round one, the state won.

Gordon Steven Green uses the drug to treat his epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. This is certainly not the only incident.. In fact, it's not even the only recent incident in Michigan. A California couple claims in a recent lawsuit that they lost their son for a year because the father took medically-prescribed pot for migraines he suffers after being exposed to chemicals during the Gulf War. California couple Daisy Bram and Jayme Walsh also lost custody of their kids. An Idaho couple who advocate for marijuana legalization had their kids taken away in April. The New York Times reported in 2011 that hundreds of parents in New York state have faced child neglect charges and risked losing custody just for admitting to smoking pot, or possessing an amount too small to merit criminal charges.

The idea that foster care is preferable to otherwise loving parents who happened to grow or occasionally smoke pot is absurd, especially given the state of foster care in some places. More absurd, in a number of these cases the police found the pot after staging dangerous, highly volatile SWAT raids on the families. So the cops bust in with guns, often at night, screaming, generally scaring the hell out of everyone, and -- every once in a while -- accidentally killing someone. The same government that sent in the SWAT team then takes the kids, or charges the parents with neglect, because "marijuana puts children at risk." - "

" Does Smoking Weed Make You A Bad Parent? 'Moms For Marijuana' Says No | A group of activist moms is rallying in support of cannabis- consuming parents and against government authorities who deem such parents unfit to raise a family. Moms For Marijuana International has announced an "International Day of Action" planned for Nov. 12. Specifically, the group wants to take Child Protective Services (CPS) to task about incidents in which medical marijuana users and activists have allegedly lost custody of their children.

"Immediate harm is required by law to remove a child from his or her home. The science and toxicology of cannabis have proven that cannabis is NOT harmful. But surely, ripping families apart is," states a post submitted to Ladybud Magazine, a publication with "a focus on activism specific to Drug War reform and other socially progressive issues." According to its website, Moms For Marijuana seeks to "spread awareness, increase and promote education, and create educated discussion within our local communities that is based upon scientific evidence, critical thinking, and logic." - "
