We will be discussing a parents right to choose the best health treatment plan for their ill children. Every day as medical cannabis’s healthful benefits are being discovered there is a clash between traditional treatment protocol and “alternative therapy” choices. Parents are choosing to treat their children with cannabis oil to treat severe conditions such as epilepsy, cerebral palsy, cancer, leukemia, diabetes and many more while the list continues to grow longer. The outcomes are undeniable yet there is controversy in some instances in choosing this method over other “lifesaving treatments”. The question then becomes who actually has the child’s best interest at heart? And who is actually "qualified" to make this determination?
