Judge Dismisses Count Against Minnesota Mom Who Treated Son With Cannabis

MINNESOTA:  District Judge Thomas Van Hon has dismissed the more serious of two charges that Lac qui Parle County brought against a Madison mother for treating her 15-year-old son with medical cannabis for a traumatic brain injury.

In a ruling filed Wednesday, the judge dismissed the “child endangerment — permitting to be present when possessing a controlled substance” against Angela Brown.

The court allowed a charge of contributing to the need for child protection to go forward to trial.

Both charges are gross misdemeanors.
