N.S. family pleads with government to let daughter use medical marijuana
The parents of a 12-year-old girl diagnosed with severe epilepsy say they have exhausted their treatment options, and are asking the province to allow her to use medical marijuana.
Brent and Chantelle Oulton’s daughter, Morgan, was born with multiple brain abnormalities and was diagnosed with cognitive impairment and autism. She also suffers from severe epilepsy.
Morgan has been on a variety of medications with little success. Her parents say some of the prescribed drugs have also had adverse side effects, actually contributing to Morgan’s seizures instead of relieving them.
