Family Loses Custody of Son After Giving Him Marijuana to Treat Seizure

Last month, Georgia Division of Family and Children Services took custody of Suzeanna and Matthew Brill's son after Twiggs County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested them for giving him marijuana.

It's a charge they don't deny.

"We openly admitted to them in front of Twiggs County sheriff's deputies," said Matthew Brill.

Their son, who we're not identifying because he is a minor and because of the sensitive nature of this case, was taken from the Brill's custody.

According to a Twiggs County Sheriff's Office report they're now charged with reckless conduct.

However, they say they're not bad parents -- they were doing what they had to to stop their son's frequent seizures.

The Brills say their son suffered from several seizures every day, "seven days a week, 24 hours a day."

After trying several prescription drugs and even cannabis oil with no results, they turned to marijuana.

"I smoke it first," said stepfather Matthew Brill. "I know where it comes from, I know my people. Made sure the bag was good, packed the bowl in my bowl, which I know ain't been anywhere else, and I set it on the table and told him that it was his decision. I did not tell him he had to or not."

The Brills say their son began smoking several times a day and when he did, it kicked off a 71-day stretch without a single seizure.

Even though they're facing a reckless conduct charge, the parents say they'd do it again to protect their child.

"Nothing else was working," said Suzeanna Brill. "I can't have my kid dying because no one wants to listen."

It's passing through legislation here to decriminalise CBD oil for the treatment of seizures in adults and children !!

Re: Family Loses Custody of Son After Giving Him Marijuana to Treat Seizure

This makes me so mad. Not because they gave a child marijuana to stop the seizures, but because the child was taken away for it. I guarantee any one would do the same rather than watch their child suffer.
I am currently trying to get my mom on CBD oil for all of her spasms and pain she has.
Once she is in my care I will get her some to try. I told her to give it a go for a couple months if she doesn't have any results. I wont continue to give it to her.
She basically has a full body charlie horse multiple times a day and lasts for 30mins sometimes.
It breaks my heart and if it will help I will give it to her.

Re: Family Loses Custody of Son After Giving Him Marijuana to Treat Seizure

i hate this shit. im shit sick of the fuckin 'war on drugs' taking away real medicine.

fun facts:

Average Daily Death Count in the US:

  • Adult Deaths by Car Crashes ......................... About 90 - 100
  • Children Under 16 by Car Crash ..................... About 6
  • Adults from Opiates (prescription or illicit)........ About 174
  • Deaths from Marijuana Overdose* ................... Still Fucking 0

...but, you know...lets take parents away from their children and put those kids in foster homes because 'weed is bad'.

* There was one case where a child died after having ingested a lot of marijuana...and while the news erroneously said it was 'caused by marijuana', the truth was that medical examiners couldnt find the cause of myocarditis and said that they assumed marijuana was associated. it wasnt the cause...it was just present. the report said β€œIn states where cannabis is legalized, it is important that physicians not only counsel parents on preventing exposure to cannabis, but to also consider cannabis toxicity in unexplained pediatric myocarditis and cardiac deaths as a basis for urine drug screening in this setting.” ...in other words, there is no evidence to prove or even suggest that 'marijuana poisoning' is a thing. its not.
