Minnesota Mom Pleads Not Guilty For Treating Son's Pain With Medical Cannabis

Thread starter #1
A mom in western Minnesota says she's not guilty for medically treating her son with marijuana. Her defense rejected an offer to settle the case in Lac Qui Parle County court today. That means her trial is expected to go forward. Angela Brown is charged with endangering a child. She says she has used cannabis oil to relieve her 15-year-old son's chronic pain and muscle spasms.

In August, Brown told WCCO that the oil was a lifesaver for her son. "No mother should have to hold their child so they don't hurt themselves," she said. "He didn't want to live." Her lawyer has asked for charges to be dismissed in light of the Minnesota legislature passing a law that allows the use of medical marijuana. That law does not go into effect until July 1, 2015.
