Mom Arrested, her Children Taken — For Successfully Treating Daughter’s Seizures with Cannabis


Gooding, ID — In spite of the mountains of evidence showing medical cannabis to be successful in killing cancer cells, saving the lives of countless epileptic children, healing broken bones, relieving pain, treating PTSD, that it is not dangerous, and exhibits a variety of other incredible benefits – the state will kill you over it, or attempt to ruin your life. Kelsey Osborne, a mother of two from Idaho, is finding this out the hard way.

Osborne’s 3-year-old daughter Madyson suffers from severe seizures. And, up until last month, Osborne was treating those seizures with a cocktail of medication, including Risperdal, which is used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Last month, Madyson’s seizures became so horrifying, that this frightened mother had nowhere else to turn.

“They would stop and come back, stop and come back with the hallucinations and everything else,” Osborne said.

So, being the caring and brave mother that she is, Osborne sought out a treatment that has been proven countless times to stop seizures in children — cannabis.

“To me, I felt like it was my last resort,” said Osborne, who maintains that she did the right thing. “I’ve seen it for my own eyes with people out of state who have used it and it’s helped them or their children.”

After exhausting all other options, Osborne gave Madyson a smoothie with a tablespoon cannabis butter in it. The results were, predictably, close to miraculous.

“Everything stopped 30 minutes later,” said Osborne.

However, saving your child’s life outside of the state-approved and often dangerous and ineffective pharmaceutical means — is illegal in Idaho. When Osborne took Madyson to the doctor a few hours after treating her, Madyson tested positive for marijuana. The see something say something doctor’s office then called the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

After successfully healing her child using cannabis, Osborne had both of her children taken from her and she was charged with misdemeanor injury to a child — for healing Madyson. Osborne has since pleaded not guilty, however, she has yet to see her children.

According to KTVB, Tom Shanahan with the Department of Health and Welfare says in any case dealing with marijuana, there is one bottom line.

“Marijuana is illegal, period,” said Shanahan, exhibiting the number one problem with law enforcement, the drug war, and the state in general — legality does not equal morality.

“Even in states that have legalized it it’s not legal to give to children,” said Shanahan. “The cannabis that is used for children with epilepsy is called cannabidiol oil and it has had THC removed from it.”

However, Shanahan conveniently ignores the fact that Idaho is in the stone age in regards to medical marijuana which makes the non-THC-containing version of cannabidiol oil illegal as well. So, thanks to the state of Idaho, Osborne had no other options.

She’s now being charged with a crime that the state forced her to commit by outlawing a treatment known to help children.

“I’m not going to stop,” Osborne said as she remains vigilant in the face of cruel medical tyranny.

In spite of the mountain of evidence showing the incredible benefits of cannabis, uniformed agents of the state will deprive you of your freedom for possessing it. Families are forced to become criminals to simply treat their children. Good people, like Kelsey Osborne, are persecuted and threatened with government sponsored violence for the mere act stopping their child’s suffering.

Families have become de facto refugees just so they can reap the amazing benefits of cannabis.

As the Free Thought Project reported in April, the Osborne’s are one of many families in this position. To treat their daughter’s myoclonic epilepsy, the Benton Family has been forced to move to Colorado. They had to leave their family, friends, and jobs behind so they can save their daughter’s life without worrying about police kicking in their door in the middle of the night, throwing flashbang grenades in their bedroom, and kidnapping and caging them.

Since she was 14 months old, Addyson Benton had a horrifying life, very similar to that of Madyson. Test results showed that she experienced over 1,000 seizures a day. The harmful and addictive prescription medication had no effect on Addyson’s seizures, so, like Osborne, the family sought out medical cannabis.

After trying CBD oil for the first time, Addyson “became a little girl again.” The results were nothing short of miraculous as Addyson was transformed immediately after her first dose.

How can these people sleep at night knowing that they are forcing children to suffer needlessly in the name of some archaic and racist law designed to target black people and hippies?

Please share this story so that others may become informed about the vile practice of forcing children to suffer to keep the state’s immoral and failed war on drugs going.

    This is usually the case in states where the State police grow HEMP & control the HEMP-! the entire process is controlled by Drug running State Troopers-! to your local corrupt Sheriff – Police departments-! to your kids on the block-! This is how it has always worked-!

    END the “War on the American People” — oops! I meant the “War” on, ahem, “Drugs” — no, actually we need to end the War on the American People.

    Just another reason Government is nothing more than a control mechanism to keep the elite in place and the people quiet. An illegitimate force we sponsor. I stopped voting years ago after researching this criminal organization. This gal should be praised for helping her child, but instead the cartel is putting its boot on her neck. Where there is government, there is no freedom.

      Yeah, except that when the global population is 7,600,000,000 and in many areas the population density exceeds 80,000 people per square mile, do you honestly think that NOBODY is going to organize others for the purpose of exerting power over those around him, i.e. form a ‘government’? Wake up.

      • Dean Olejniczak

        You’re exactly what they’re looking for… keep the institution alive and don’t forget to vote for your new master. We were warned about this back in 1802 by Thomas Jefferson (a self proclaimed elitist).

        “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.” He saw the Big Gov and Big Corp cabal… Sound familiar?

        • tronald dump

          Nothing you said has anything to do with what I said. Government is a function of primate behavior. When the conditions for it arise, e.g. population density reaches a critical threshold, there will be some kind of ruling body, a.k.a. government. Your “it’s possible to have no government” flies in the face of reality, and it just makes you look stupid as hell.

          • Dean Olejniczak

            Thank you for the kind words at the end… lol. Google Catalonia 1936 and tell me where their government was? That is until Fascists crushed them and took “control”.

    It appears that the Idaho politicians and law enforcement that support destroying peoples lives for using medicine that cures their children, could benefit from a treatment themselves. THE treatment is a well applied baseball bat to the side of their head. IF the treatment doesn’t at first give them a sense of right or wrong, liberally apply the bat again and again.

    It’s so sad to hear that these anti-cannabis nazi’s still seem intent on waging their losing war on marijuana. Against a drug that has been widely AND safely used for thousands of years. A drug for which human beings have never suffered a confirmed fatal overdose. That closet door has been forever thrown wide open and it’s only a matter of time before the people of this great country demand national legalization. Now we need to start educating people about the futility & counterproductivity of the rest of the “war” on drugs. Opioid overdose deaths and addiction rates are at an all time high in most of the United States. The bulk of the damage from opioids (unlike with alcohol or methamphetamine) comes from their illicit status, the ensuing criminal black market, and the risk of overdose, adulterated supplies, and infectious disease transmission–NOT FROM THE PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF DRUG ITSELF. We need to start thinking about legalizing ALL DRUGS and working on harm-reduction and prevention/education strategies to mitigate damage from abuse & addiction.
