A Florida-based mom and advocate for medical Cannabis freedom received an ominous visit from the Department of Children and Families after someone offered up an anonymous tip that she was giving her son illegal marijuana – and had stopped his prescribed drugs.
They cornered and questioned her daughter about their family life, asking the little girl all kinds of personal questions about her mother, whom she very much supports in her efforts.
What’s her side of the story? Hint: it’s not fully reported in this news piece. See below for more information.
More on the story of Renee Petro from Fox 13 News:
“It hurts a lot that my son is suffering and people have taken it upon themselves to hurt us,” Petro said.
But there’s also fire.
“This isn’t going to stop me. This is only going to challenge me even more,” she added.
Petro has been a vocal supporter of the growing medical marijuana movement in Florida. She wants it for her son Branden who suffers from frequent seizures.
Since then, she’s received praise and some skepticism — but what happened Tuesday floored her.
The Department of Children and Families came knocking, launching an investigation from an anonymous tip.
The claim was that Petro stopped giving her son his prescribed medicine and was instead giving him illegal cannabis.
It is a claim she vehemently denies.
“I would not do anything to jeopardize losing my child,” she said.
Petro says she’s done everything by the book. She does admit giving Branden hemp extract, but that’s perfectly legal.
“I feel like they raped us. They’re taking advantage of the situation,” she said.
