Addyson was diagnosed with myoclonic epilepsy at 14 months old. Tests showed she was having over 1,000 seizures a day. After trying several medications unsuccessfully, the family was almost without hope.

Colorado officials defend marijuana legalization at U.S. Supreme Court

Robert Grandt works in the grow room at 3D Cannabis Center in Denver on March 11, 2015.

Arguing that two neighboring states are dangerously attempting "to selectively manipulate Colorado's marijuana laws," state Attorney General Cynthia Coffman on Friday urged the U.S. Supreme Court to reject a landmark lawsuit filed by Nebraska and Oklahoma over marijuana legalization.

The lawsuit seeks to strike down Colorado's licensing of recreational marijuana stores. Nebraska and Oklahoma officials argue that the stores have caused a flood of marijuana into their states, stretching their law enforcement agencies thin and threatening their sovereignty.

Denver cracks down on marijuana warehouses

Landon Riddle, 5, who has leukemia and uses medical marijuana to treat it, plays in a warehouse where medical caregivers grow marijuana in Denver. Riddle’s mother joined about a dozen activists and caregivers at the facility to discuss adjusting to a Denver City Council decision that bans caregivers from sharing space, which likely could close down warehouses such as this one.

The Denver Fire Department issued 58 permits for warehouses to grow marijuana in nonlicensed facilities last year – marijuana not to be sold in dispensaries. This marijuana was to be grown primarily by caregivers for consumption by medical users or for the grower’s personal use.
