The Marietta Daily Journal – Cherokee County mom advocating for medical marijuana in Georgia

HOLLY SPRINGS — Corey Lowe doesn’t know if medical marijuana can help her daughter, but as a mother she said she is willing to fight for a chance to make her child’s life better — no matter how long that life may be.

Lowe, 35, of Holly Springs, is pushing state lawmakers in 2014 to legalize medical use of the drug in hopes it might help her 12-year-old daughter Victoria, who has chronic seizures and cannot speak because of development issues.

“This may or may not work, and all I’m asking is to have the opportunity to try it,” Lowe said Friday. “I’m always trying to find something to help her. We’re not some potheads … trying to get our daughter stoned.”

Victoria, a Hasty Elementary School student, was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease at an early age. Lowe said doctors told her and her husband, Jason, to do their best to make their child’s life as good as possible, because she probably wouldn’t live to be an adult.
