Parents in eastern Iowa are leaving the state to try and get a drug to stop their little girl from getting seizures.
Maggie Selmeski from Janesville is 17-months old and has been diagnosed with infantile spasms.
She’s been on four anti-seizure medications but nothing has worked.
Her parents told KWWL she has 500 seizures a day and has the brain and motor development skills of a three-month old.
“We are in the process of moving to Colorado to gain access to medical marijuana,” Maggie’s mom, Rachel says.
Her parents got the idea of using medical marijuana after watching a documentary.
