Girl, 12, suing to legalize medical marijuana nationwide

Colorado girl suing US Attorney General to legalize medical marijuana nationwide

Her father, Dean Bortell said that he doesn't understand or support the archaic laws of Texas, and how come cannabis is still a Schedule 1 drug, just like heroin.

But Alexis isn't like most 12-year-olds.

Obama-era guidance that allows states to legalize marijuana without federal interference remains in effect, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Tuesday during a congressional hearing.

"As the seizures got worse, we had to move to Colorado to get cannabis, because it's illegal in Texas", she said.

Declawing procedure for cats now banned in Denver
A ban on declawing cats passed unanimously during a Denver City Council meeting Monday, according to 9 News in Denver . Bans also are common in other countries, including Australia, Israel, Brazil, Japan and across much of Europe.

Although marijuana has been legalized in medical use for some states in the USA, this lawsuit wants to achieve a nationwide legalizing. "Nothing she tried worked", the suit states.

The Bortell's attorney, Michael Hiller, gave a statement regarding bringing down the Controlled Substances Act, which normally restricts the use of classified "drugs".

According to ABC news, Alex Bortell's father and a team of plaintiffs have filed a a suit against the attorney general, the Department of Justice, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the entire South District of NY. The Cannabis Cultural Association is also named as a plaintiff, according to court documents.

[The government] made a representation that cannabis has medical application for the treatments of Parkinson's Disease, HIV-induced dementia and Alzheimer's disease, and yet at the same time, the United States government maintains that there is absolutely no medical benefit for the use of cannabis. ABC News says they contacted the Justice Department for comment on the lawsuit but did not get a response.

Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. (NASDAQ:WBA) reported Sales of 118.21 Billion
Investors look at the Volatility 12m to determine if a company has a low volatility percentage or not over the course of a year. However, the company sales do not necessarily expose the entire picture, as it might be unprofitable with a low P/S ratio.

In Bortell's case, she can not travel without cannabis oil-a treatment she has opted for over brain surgery-and that limits her ability to visit her grandparents' home state of Texas (where medical marijuana is illegal) or to go onto military bases with her veteran parents, reports NBC News. It has been 2 years without having a seizure, compared to the time before the Cannabis treatment, when she would have more seizures in a single day. THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, is the active ingredient in marijuana that makes people feel "high". She suffered daily seizures.

That's the reason why the teen and her parents have joined four other plaintiffs in a lawsuit that aims to legalise medical marijuana at the federal level. Research on the medical benefits of medical marijuana has been going on for years now and the outlook is positive. She returned to her home town of Denver in 2012 after living in eleven other cities in four countries, and.

Because marijuana is a "schedule one" drug, categorized with other drugs like heroin by the federal government, Alexis can't use her medication on federal property. She also can't visit national parks or go to Disney World.

"I would like to be able to visit my grandparents without risking being taken to a foster home", she said, speaking of how she was now unable to return to Texas due to federal drug laws.
