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. Repetski wants the Canadian government to change its rules to make marijuana available in more forms than just dried bud to better treat people like his daughter. (Repetski says the current government rules are forcing people to make marijuana oil in their kitchens when it should be allowing, and regulating, more forms of marijuana.)
