NEXT AT SIX- PARENTS ARE LOOKING FOR ANSWERS ON HOW
TO GET MARIJUANA OR "C-B-D" OIL TO TREAT THEIR CHILDRENS'
-- MICHELLE --
NEWS THREE'S JESSICA ARP TELLS US.
THIS IS *AFTER* LAWMAKERS TOOK EFFORTS TO LEGALIZE
THE C-B-D OIL BILL WAS PASSED TO THE ELATION OF FAMILIES
BUT THAT HAS TURNED TO FRUSTRATION...
AS THEY CAN'T FIND A DOCTOR TO HELP THEM GET IT.
siezures make me mad
EVEN WHEN TALKING ABOUT THE SIEZURES THAT TORMENT
18-YEAR-OLD HAILY KRAUSE HAS AN UNFORGETTABLE SMILE.
you're a cute mom, you're a cute daughter
HAILY'S MOM KARI CARRIE WAS ONE OF MANY PARENTS WHO
FOUGHT FOR A BILL TO LEGALIZE THE USE OF C-B-D OIL
TO TREAT SIEZURE DISORDERS...
BUT HER HOPE FOR TREATMENT FADED WITH A PHONE CALL.
i immediately got on the phone with her doctor, and
i said ok so the cbd oil bill passed, whats our next
step, and he said i'm not goign to prescribe it ;10
and i said what do we do, if we want to try it, what
do we do, and he said well i'm not gonna prescribe
it go somewhere else ;17
AND HASN'T YET FOUND SOMEONE WILLING TO APPLY FOR
AN F-D-A INVESTIGATIONAL PERMIT TO PRESCRIBE THE DRUG...
THE SITUATION WAS THE SAME FOR MICHELLE SCHULTZ OF
WHO TOOK HER SON OUT OF CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OF WISCONSIN
AND TO ANOTHER STATE FOR TREATMENT
MICHELLE SCHULTZ/SON HAS EPILEPSY"It's ridiculous.
We fought so hard to get it legalized and now they're
making it even harder and it's here.
that was not something that was raised to us
GOVERNOR WALKER ADDRESSED THE ISSUE WITH REPORTERS
AFTER AN EVENT WEDNESDAY.
we want to find out what can be done, i dont know
right now what the answer is in terms of i dont think
at either childrens hospitals we'd be forcing them
to do that :35 maybe as more attention goes to this
there might be other alternative ways :40
BUT KRAUSE SAYS ITS HARD FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND
THAT EVERY DAY WITH HAILY'S SMILE.
COULD BE HER LAST.
thats why this is so crucial ;23 because we want her
with us, and all we want is a chance, thats all we
want :28 and we cant get it :31
THAT FEAR OF LOSING A CHILD WAS MAGNIFIED THIS MONTH
AFTER THE DEATH OF LYDIA SCHAEFFER.
CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OF WISCONSIN MILWAUKEE AND AMERICAN
FAMILY CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL NOTE THAT THE OIL IS NOT
AND DON'T *CURRENTLY* PRESCRIBE IT...
WE WERE UNABLE TO GET INFORMATION FROM THE STATE'S
CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES BOARD ABOUT ANY DOCTORS WHO
HAVE CONTACTED THEM ABOUT APPLYING FOR THE FDA PERMIT.
