“The very first time Remie had it, she walked on her own for the first time.”
While for many cannabis might simply serve as an extracurricular activity, for others it’s an absolute necessity, a miracle plant that vastly improves the quality of daily life.
For 3-year-old Remie Ellet medicinal marijuana gives her the ability to walk around, laugh, eat food, and act like a child. It frees her of many of the terrible side effects caused by a multitude of illnesses.
But after being confronted by the Utah Division of Child and Family Services, Remie Ellet’s mother, Sarah, is worried that she could lose custody of her daughter, have to discontinue use of the medication that’s provided a complete turnaround for her daughter, or sell her home and leave the state to continue proper medical treatment, unless Utah law passes legislation making medical marijuana legal.
How many more patients like 3-year-old Remie will we allow to suffer before we amend our antiquity policies?
