It seems that having ones liberties removed over cancer related circumstances are becoming a theme these days. First we have the tragic case of a girl being forced to undergo chemo by the state of CT, and then a father who gave his 2 year old daughter cannabis oil to ease the pain she was experiencing from lung cancer was jailed.
While there is no positive update on Cassandra’s chemo prison, there is at least the reunification of a father and his terminally ill daughter, as Adam Koessler has been released from jail on bail. Via Yahoo:
When Adam Koessler’s 2-year-old daughter Rumer Rose was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma recently, he began supplementing her chemo treatments with doses of cannabis oil, seeing “amazing” results. Still, Koessler lives in Australia, where medical marijuana is illegal, and he was arrested Jan. 2 for his efforts; he was released on bail but now faces charges for possessing dangerous drugs and for supplying them to a minor, and is due back in court on Friday. The situation has outraged thousands around the world, who have signed online petitions and raised money in support of the single dad.
Another victim of the “War on Drugs.” You know that this same situation would play out in the exact same manner here in the USA, without a doubt – despite the fact that it is well known that cannabis can ease suffering from cancer and help with appetite during chemotherapy. At least in the US it could be argued that the legality of marijuana in some states for medical purposes warranted use on a child (as it should in my opinion), but Australia’s government looks to be less than lenient.
On Jan. 9, Rumer was moved to the hospital’s intensive care unit after having seizures. In the meantime, note administrators of Koessler’s Fearless Father page on Facebook, “We want to say thank you, to all of the amazing people who are supporting Adam, sending him hundreds of personal messages of support, showing your support on this page. All of that positive is helping Adam to stay calm and believe that good will come of all of this. This is a fight that will make a difference for so many people around Australia and the world.”
Can you imagine if this man’s daughter had died while he was jailed for trying to make her life bearable? All because of an antiquated and idiotic notion that the state should have any say over what someone puts into their body or deems appropriate for their child in this extreme and sad circumstance.
