Alexis Bortell: Texas Girl Whose Seizures Cured By Cannabis Oil Becomes Medical Marijuana Advocate

Alexis Bortell is a Texas girl whose daily epileptic seizures were quelled by medical marijuana, and now she is turning into one of the state’s biggest advocates for legalized cannabis.

 

One year ago, Bortell was living with a condition that prevented her from living a normal life, and treatments were not making the seizures get any better.

A specialist told the Bortell family that Alexis might benefit by leaving Texas and moving to a state where she could be treated with medical marijuana.

Texas Young Republicans support marijuana decriminalization

The Texas Young Republicans, a group affiliated with the state GOP, are publicly backing legislative efforts to decriminalize marijuana possession.

More than three-fourths of the group’s membership support decriminalizing possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and removing fines that can be levied, according to a survey the group conducted.

The House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee discussed proposals late Wednesday night that would reduce the penalties for possessing small amounts of marijuana, and one bill that would legalize it altogether.

Texas: Pot legalization up for debate in House committee

Marijuana advocates head back to the Capitol Wednesday as a House committee prepares to discuss the first round of pot legislation.

Lawmakers will hear testimony on three different proposals seeking to reduce the penalties for possessing small amounts of marijuana and a blunter approach to legalize it outright.

Though the issue has garnered some bipartisan support, the efforts are likely to go up in smoke due to pushback from conservative lawmakers and leadership.

The proposal most supported by pot backers would make possession of one ounce or less a citable offense rather than a criminal one.

Medical marijuana keeps Texas 9-year-old seizure free for a month

Alexis Bortell, a 9-year-old girl from Texas, has had to move to Colorado in order to seek treatment for her seizures through medical marijuana. She has since been on her new medicine for a month, and has not experienced any seizure symptoms.

Her father, Dean Bortell, says that her longest good ‘streak’ on pharmaceuticals was a couple of days. “We thought if we could get down to one ‘episode’ a week it would be a miracle. Monday marks four weeks and zero symptoms. We are completely amazed,” Dean states. “It is important to note that this ‘symptom elimination’ has been achieved using Haleigh’s Hope and THC oil with zero side effects.”

Haleigh’s Hope is a strain of concentrated cannabis which has been extremely effective at helping to manage epilepsy symptoms.

Texas sheriff fumbles as hemp is poised to pass committee

Hemp recently had its first committee hearing in the Texas legislature, and it involved about a dozen supporters testifying in favor of the two bills, along with one very confused sheriff.

Two bills submitted by Rep. Joe Farias of San Antonio would bring hemp to the Texas agriculture scene. House Bill 557 would legalize hemp for research purposes through institutions of higher education, while House Bill 1322 legalizes hemp for Texas farmers to grow alongside other crops.

Many groups were represented at the hearing, including farmers, health food stores, an insurance company, and the Texas Hemp Industries Association. Both bills were heard at the same time.
