LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Six-month-old Bree Green was removed from her Lansing home last Friday after a referee determined her home was unsafe because medical marijuana was being grown and used inside to treat her father's MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and epilepsy. The mother, Maria Green, was told by the referee who made the removal decision that they were worried about a possible break-in or armed robbery.
The marijuana attorney has a different view. "They obscure it with this refer madness rhetoric and we are done with that. We're not going to take it anymore. This is our red line. You take our kids away and we'll revolt" said Thomas Lavigne, Detroit Attorney.
"The kind of choices parents make impact their kids. The safety and well-being of the child is paramount for any of our investigators when they are doing their job," said David Akerly, Welfare Department.
6 News reached out to the State Department of human services and a spokesman said that for privacy reasons, they cannot comment in individual cases, but he did say that the kind of choices parents make have an impact on their children.
