Wearing small pink sneakers and a smaller pink bow, the youngest medical marijuana patient in Michigan joined hundreds at the Capitol Wednesday protesting changes to state cannabis legislation.

Nine month-old Anastasia has been a cannabis patient for two-thirds of her life, her grandmother Tanya Kaye told attendees as she held her. Her seizures started less than 24 hours after she was born, at a pace of around 16 to 20 per hour. The family decided to try medical marjiuana as a treatment when she was three months old.

A week later, she was smiling and laughing. Six months later, she was at the rally. Kaye said she’s unable to buy her medicine directly from provisioning centers and or processors, so the caregiver system is how the family manages her seizures.

“They cannot profit off of this child, so therefore they’re not interested,” Kaye said.

Kaye was one of two dozen speakers at Wednesday’s rally against proposed changes to Michigan’s medical marijuana laws — together called the Michigan Cannabis Safety Act — which would require caregivers to be licensed as specialty growers or cut their number of patients from five to one. The rally also featured live music, free marijuana seeds, puffs of smoke pouring from the audience and signs reading “Big Pharma doesn’t know me, but my caregiver does” and “the system works fine.” [Read More @ Lansing State Journal]
