Medical Marijuana Supporters Hoping ‘Baby Bree’ Case Sets Precedent For Future Cases

dea kids children medical marijuanaIt’s a very sad thing when parents have their children ripped out of their arms simply because the parents are medical marijuana patients. It’s becoming more and more common it seems like, which is so wrong it’s hard to find the right words to describe how it makes me feel. I recently had a child, and if he was ever taken from me because of the type of legal medicine I use to alleviate my symptoms, I wouldn’t handle it well I assure you of that. Why is it that people can take any other form of medication and their parenting skills are never questioned, yet if a licensed medical marijuana patient has their medicine safely hidden away from their child they are still considered a danger?

Unfortunately, this is a nightmare that the Green family recently had to endure in Michigan. Known as Baby Bree, the little girl was removed from the Green home for reasons related to her parent’s registered participation in Michigan’s medical marijuana program. I’m happy to say that Baby Bree was eventually returned to her family, but only after a  heart wrenching legal battle. Medical marijuana supporters around Michigan are hoping that her case is one that sets a precedent for any possible future cases. Hopefully her situation is one that is never repeated.

According to Wilx 10 in Michigan:

“A parent shouldn’t have to worry about losing their children because of the natural form of medication they choose to use,” said Robin Schneider with Michigan Moms United and the National Patients Rights Association. ”This is a widespread issue, we are seeing parental rights being threatened all over the state.” Schneider said she’s optimistic the Green’s case will be a game-changer for other medical marijuana using parents in the state. ”We really hope this issue created enough precedent in the media and with the citizens of Michigan and our officials so that this won’t happen again,” she said.

There are numerous cases all over the country where this is happening. Contact your legislators to tell them to respect the rights of sick patients, and that this is unacceptable. Your voice just might be the one that they listen to, and it just might keep this from happening where you live.

  2. Yes, I’m guessing that people who go into that kind of work aren’t really in it for the salary. But if we paid them more, perhaps they could do some sort of rotation where they are off for a couple of months, sort of like teachers (although teachers do work year-round, really). CPS workers, like cops, see some of the worst of humanity every day without fail. They need our support.

  3. It has NOTHING to do with the pay. Their turnover rate is SKY-HIGH due to BURNOUT! Not too many people can SEE the HORRENDOUS things they do, that SOME people do to their kids and stay EMOTIONALLY DISCONNECTED. They get EMOTIONALLY BURNED OUT & just can’t handle it anymore and therefore the high turnover rate of CPS workers. I’m NOT condoning what they do in MMJ patient cases. However I DO understand their plight because they see some HORRENDOUS SHIT man!

  4. Alcohol is accepted .encouraged
    And enjoyed by the people out to rid the world of drugs
    Most work for the government.
    Hypocrite alcoholics .newsflash; alcohol is 1 of the oldest known drugs .
    Cannabis is mild compared to alcohol
    Abuse comes in many forms , removing a child from their parents is abuse when no problem exists :error in favor of a child
    And thesr vigilantes enjoy full immunity
    Karma will catchup

  5. Well, Senor Phantom, I hope that’s not true. I suppose if we paid CPS workers more, we might have different results.

  6. Where’s the pressure coming from to criminalize MMJ mothers in Michigan? Is it just CPS ineptitude?
