Lawmakers push to allow medical marijuana in schools

ALEXIS MYERS | March 29th, 2017

Meagan Holt sat in the front row of a committee hearing earlier this week holding her 4-year-old daughter Maddie in one arm and a syringe filled with cannabis oil in the other.

“Cannabis is what’s kept her alive all this time,” Holt said. “She isn’t supposed to be here.”

Maddie was born blind, deaf and has many health complications from a rare terminal disease called Zellweger Syndrome. Holt says babies like her usually die shortly after birth, but Maddie has surpassed her life expectancy because of medical marijuana.
