3 min read

A 12-year-old girl from Texas is suing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Agency hoping for make medical marijuana legal nationwide, regardless of state law. Alex Bortell’s family moved to Colorado after finding out that cannabis oil treated their epilepsy better than other drugs. For the past two and a half years, she has taken a drop of liquid THC morning and night and not had a single seizure. The only problem: she can’t go home.

Both the state of Texas and the federal government are against legalized marijuana, as are Alex and her family return to their home stateThey could have problems with the law if they continued to use the THC. “I want to be able to visit my grandparents without the risk of being taken to a nursing home,” Alex told local Fox partner KDVR. She would also like to go to college in Texas when she is older. However, in the absence of medical marijuana, her doctors have recommended risky brain surgery to contain the seizures. You can understand why they are staying in Centennial State.

The lawsuit, filed in July, includes another minor, a veteran, and former defense attorney Marvin Washington of the San Francisco 49ers. The official court document filed in the southern borough of New York states: “This lawsuit benefits tens of millions of Americans who need cannabis to treat their diseases, illnesses and ailments, but cannot safely receive illnesses.”
