The Attorney General is being sued by a 12-year-old girl.
It’s all to legalize medical marijuana nationwide.
Alexis Bortell, 12, and her family moved to Colorado to access medical marijuana to help manage her epilepsy.
A drop of THC twice a day has kept her seizure-free for two and a half years, but Bortell says the federal law restricting marijuana use prevents her from returning to Texas.
“I have intractable epilepsy so I have seizures that traditional medications wouldn’t really help,” Bortell said. “I would like to be able to visit my grandparents without risking being taken to a foster home.”
Another child, a marijuana advocacy group, a military vet and former Denver Broncos player Marvin Washington have joined the lawsuit.
The U.S. lost its first motion to dismiss the case.
