Suzeanna and Matthew Brill are being charged with reckless conduct for treating their son's seizures with cannabis. Child Services now has custody of the child.
The Georgia couple say their son suffers from near constant seizures and after trying several prescription medications, including cannabis oil, the family turned to cannabis flower. Now, they are being charged for giving their son marijuana. But, Matthew says it was to help their son and they're not ashamed of their actions.
"We openly admitted to them in front of Twiggs County sheriff's deputies," Matthew Brill told 13WMAZ. "I smoke it first. I know where it comes from, I know my people."
The Brills say that previously to using cannabis their son suffered several seizures a day, now he's 71 days seizure free.
"Nothing else was working," said Suzeanna Brill. "I can't have my kid dying because no one wants to listen."
