An Ontario father is pushing ahead with a medical treatment for his daughter that is illegal in Canada. Alex Repetski has a legal exemption to give his three-year-old daughter marijuana, which has dramatically improved her crippling epilepsy. But to give it to her, he must convert weed to oil, which is against the law. Criminal defence lawyer Daniel Brown says the current laws infringe on Repetski's Charter of Rights and Freedoms. (Brown says he'll represent Repetski pro bono if he is charged after going public with the story of his daughter's remarkable recovery due to marijuana oil.)
