Bridgett Liquori, from Georgia where anti-cannabis laws are stringently enforced, says it is time lawmakers revised their opinions. She has seen an incredible change in her son since she began dosing him with cannabis oil for bone disease. The Free Thought Project reports on a brave mother who risks arrest to give her son the medicine that works for him.
Jackson, Liquori’s son, was born with cerebral palsy, as well as chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO), an inflammatory bone disease. The condition was agonizingly painful, and Liquori couldn’t bear to stand idly by and watch him suffer.
Last day of pain
The day Liquori decided to put an end to Jackson’s pain was the 5th of June 2016. She says that was Jackson’s last bad day. As a mother, she set out to find some solution for the suffering her child was enduring.
Cannabis oil for bone disease and inflammation, as well as pain, seemed like it might work, so she secretly tried treating her child with cannabis oil. She kept a detailed description of the treatment so that she could see what would work for Jackson.

No more prescription drugs, only cannabis oil for bone disease
The most amazing thing is that Jackson is now off all prescription medication, and he is thriving. Whereas he was previously in too much pain to play or move about, he can now enjoy life like an ordinary kid.
On 19th October, his mom made a note in her diary observing that the cannabis tincture was nothing short of a miracle. She’s shared her story with Jackson’s doctor, and he is now documenting the remarkable recovery.
Liquori says it didn’t take much cannabis oil to bring about this change: two milliliters of cannabis oil three times a day transformed Jackson from being an immobile, suffering child in pain to a boy who can run, laugh, and play.
Access to cannabis
When she saw how cannabis oil for bone disease helped her son, Bridgett Liquori’s battle took on another shape. She wants all residents of Georgia to have access to cannabis oil if it can help them, and she has become a medical marijuana activist.
Liquori feels very strongly that it is time to stop depriving parents of a natural way to ease their children’s pain. She recently voiced her opinion to the Georgia State Capitol, asking lawmakers to add chronic pain, autism, and other conditions to the list of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana.
Liquori knows that the Department of Social Services (DSS) might remove Jackson from her care because she is giving him cannabis oil. She says she has had some issues with the DSS, but if they were to take action, she would fight her battle. Bridgett has documented her son’s improvement. She has the support of his doctors, and she has testified before the state House of Representatives about her illegal actions.
Bridgett says she wishes the police would arrest her because that might create publicity that could bring about a change in Georgia’s “archaic laws”. She believes that if enough people would support her and stand together, they would win the right to access to medical cannabis.
Cannabis is a medicine
Liquori plans a march for the next Georgia State Capital session and hopes there’ll be a big turnout. A grassroots movement of people is coming together from the southern and western parts of the state to the capital, and they will not go away until they can get their message across. Cannabis has restorative and healing properties, it is a medicine, and the law should acknowledge it as such.
