enee Petro is a mother pushing for the legalization of marijuana, so she can treat her son, Brandon, for epilepsy.
While vowing to keep campaigning for the passage of the medical marijuana ballot measure in November, she is considering a move to Colorado, where medical marijuana is legal.
“We could get him on the cannabis oil quickly, or should I stay here and fight the fight?” said Petro.
Last week, she took an exploratory trip to the place some call the new frontier for medical marijuana. It was an effort to find out what the process would be like to get her child treated with the drug. Her plan could land her among the 100 families known as “medical marijuana refugees.”
