Texas Household Wins Legal Fight Over Medical Marijuana
A little favorable news came out today for the Zartler household of Richmond, Texas. They have been using medical marijuana as an effective form of treatment for their daughter’s bouts of self damage and were in jeopardy of losing custody of her. They won their legal battle over having the ability to preserve custody of their child. Kara Zartler, an 18 years of age who regretfully suffers from both autism and spastic paralysis, has been vulnerable to hurting herself in fits that her moms and dads claim medical cannabis has actually been able to prevent. This ruling can be considered a substantial boon for legalization efforts in the otherwise consistently conservative state.
