A mother will do just about anything to help their child, especially when they’re sick or suffering, which is why one mom decided to do something illegal to help her daughter suffering from scary seizures.
After one Idaho 3-year-old was taken off a prescription anti-psychotic medication, she began suffering from seizures and hallucinations, however, one morning in October, the little girl’s seizures were worse than ever before. “They would stop and come back, stop and come back with the hallucinations and everything else,” mom Kelsey Osborne said.
Nothing Osborne did helped Madyson’s seizures, so she decided to make her daughter a smoothie with marijuana butter in it. “Everything stopped 30 minutes later,” said Osborne. “To me, I felt like it was my last resort. I’ve seen it for my own eyes with people out of state who have used it and it’s helped them or their children.”
However, marijuana is still illegal in Idaho, so when Osborne took her daughter to the doctor after getting her to calm down, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare was called when Madyson tested positive for marijuana. Osborne was immediately charged with misdemeanor injury to a child and has since lost custody of her children.
“I didn’t ever think it would come down to this, but it did. It tore me apart,” said Osborne, who is sharing her story to spark medical marijuana reform and is protesting until she gets her kids back.”It’s something that I’m going to fight for and I’m not going to give up until I have them back home where they have been begging me to be. I’m not going to stop. I won’t stop. If it takes me two years, then it’s going to take me two years.”
