Would you give your child Medical Marijuana?

Now on 20/20... One mother who has a child with sever OCD, has tried therapy and chemical medications... None worked. She lives in CA, where medical marijuana is legal. Her doctor Prescribes it and she uses it in a tincture or baked in bread to help her child - and it's working...

What do you think? IF it was legal for you to do, and your options were marijuana or more meds... What would you choose? Would you at least consider it?

  • People use herbs and plants all the time as medicine so I see no problem with it, especially if it is actually helping!

  • guess I would have to be in that situation. I cant judge his mom. The child is obviously going through pain weather it be a sickness in some eyes or not. No one knows what her child is going through, so I will not judge. I dont think I would totally object to it, especially if it can finally give my child a better life. She isnt sitting around and letting her child hit off a joint!

  • oh if there was a medicine beside marijuana i would weigh my options and study it but i would probably end up with the medicine it would have to be serious for me to choose marijuana i've just never like it even as a medicinal remedy but if it helps and there is no other choice and it was desperately needed then i might allow it.
