Eleven-year-old Texas girl sues feds over medical marijuana

AaaMedical marijuana may be helping epileptic patients live more normal lives, but it's still illegal under federal law.  the federal government still refuses to acknowledge the medical qualities of cannabis.  A group of plaintiffs, including Alexis Bortell, 11-year-old girl from Rowlett, Texas, is suing the federal government to force a change in that law.  CBS-TV in Dallas has the story, with a video.

Bortell, who calls herself MMJ's "Youngest Advocate" in her book, Let's Talk About Medical Cannabis   (published in April) also now has has her own advocacy web site.
