FRANKFORT, Ky. (WDRB) — A Louisville family urged lawmakers to legalize medical marijuana in emotional testimony Friday at the State Capitol.

 

Cassie Everett was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was 11 years old.

 

“And they said it will progressively get worse as you get older, which means increasing medications,” she told WDRB News.

 

Everett brought her large bag of medications to a meeting of the Interim Judiciary Committee. She told lawmakers she wants to back off the prescription drugs, which are costly and have serious side effects.
