MPs plead for mum Cassie Batten who gave cannabis to ill son

A group of federal MPs has used the case of terminally ill Tamworth man Daniel Haslam to argue for compassionate treatment of a Victorian woman who could face charges for supplying medicinal cannabis to her son.

Federal Liberal MP Sharman Stone, Labor member Melissa Parke and Greens senator Richard Di Natale have written to Victorian Premier Denis Napthine, expressing concern about the treatment of Victorian woman Cassie Batten, whose home in Mernda was raided by police on July 10 after she gave a television interview on how she used cannabis oil to treat the epilepsy of her son Cooper.
