14-Year-Old Helps Legalize Medical Marijuana

Meet Oliver Miller-Medical Marijuana Patient New York

Missy Miller is an Atlantic Beach resident and mother of two children, Oliver and Katy. Her 14-year-old son, Oliver, suffered a stroke in utero and as a result has a brain stem injury that causes him to have hundreds of seizures a day. Because certain strains of marijuana have received international attention for curbing seizures in children, Missy has devoted to the cause of fighting for the legalization of medical marijuana in New York.

 

Elite Daily met with Missy earlier this year to discuss her frustrations with the current New York political system, and her fear of losing her son. We’ve continued our discussions with her throughout her fight, all the way up to the big decision in Albany on June 19, and the official signing ceremony in New York City earlier this afternoon.
