It’s a topic that has sparked debate across the nation over the last few years – legalizing marijuana. In Idaho, recreational and medical marijuana is still illegal.
Last month, Kelsey Osborne, a Gooding mother of two, had her children taken from her after she gave her daughter a smoothie with marijuana in it as an attempt to stop her seizures.
A month later, the two children – Madyson and Ryker – are still living with their father and Osborne is still trying to get them back.
“I didn’t ever think it would come down to this, but it did,” Osborne told KTVB. “It tore me apart.”
She says her 3-year-old daughter has a history of seizures, but one morning early October, it was worse than ever before.
“They would stop and come back, stop and come back with the hallucinations and everything else,” Osborne said.
