Angela Brown was ready for her day in court. Ready to fight a misdemeanor charge that she endangered her sick child by giving him a few drops of marijuana oil.
But days before the trial was to start, the county attorney dropped the charge, depriving Brown of a chance to defend her choice of treatment for her son — a choice that brought national attention and notoriety to the family and their hometown of Madison, Minn.“I feel like I’ve been in a boxing ring for a whole year. I’m one punch away from a victory, and my opponent walks away,” Brown said with an angry laugh. “They’re just dismissing it like it never happened.”
