Groundbreaking medical marijuana instance lets little girl go back to school

( CNN) A little girl was back in a school she loves in Schaumburg, Illinois, last week, but only after a federal magistrate said it was OK for her to bring her prescription medication with her.

Eleven-year-old Ashley Surin was not allowed to attend class because she wears a medical marijuana patch and uses cannabis oil and lotion to manage seizures. The medical marijuana and a special diet have worked wonders for her health, according to her parents.

“The two together are a golden cure for her, ” her mom, Maureen Surin, said through tears after an emergency hearing in Chicago earlier this month. “She can think better, stroll better, talk better. Her brain used to be like in a cloud. Now she can suppose better and is more alert and she can interact.”
