Mom Faces Prosecution For Trying To Save Her Daughter With Cannabis Oil

Vera Twomey did everything she could to bring home medical cannabis to her six-year-old daughter Ava, who suffers from both a severe and rare form of epilepsy. However, her efforts to help her daughter may soon land her behind bars. While attempting to get the THC-based medicine from Spain to Cork, Irish customs jumped in and attacked her. And of course, seized the medication that she intended to give her daughter.

Irish customs attacks Cork mom

Unfortunately, well-known Cork mother Vera Twomey is now facing a possible prosecution. All because she wanted to bring home medical cannabis to help her daughter Ava.

Six-year-old Ava suffers from a rare and severe form of epilepsy. For this reason, Vera was willing to go above and beyond to treat her daughter, even if it meant bringing cannabis into Dublin airport.

Vera managed to access the THC-based medicine in Barcelona. But when it came time to fly home, the customs team jumped in and attacked the mother, even though she declared the medicine.

According to Vera, she was interrogated by customs officers for almost an hour. Now, her efforts to help her daughter may soon land her behind bars.

The incident isn’t going to stop her, though. Vera says she will continue to fight on, as cannabis is freely available all over Europe. Not to mention, the US, Canada, and Australia,

We feel very strongly that we did nothing wrong and that this medication is necessary to save the lives of children like my daughter.

Ava’s campaign

Just this March, Twomey walked from Cork to Dublin to highlight her daughter’s case. And since the recent incident, she has reached out to the Department of Health with hopes that they will act to help Ava.

Last October, Ava began a CBD-based treatment. And ever since then, she has shown remarkable improvements. The product contains only a tiny amount THC and was in fact prescribed by a specialist.

However, Vera has been campaigning for months for a stronger THC-based medicine for Ava. That what landed her in Barcelona, where she finally was able to access the drug,

We met with a consultant… and he determined that Eva was a candidate [for the medication] and that it would be necessary for seizure control that she would have THC alongside CBD.

Despite her cooperation with customs, the officers treated her as if she was a criminal. And while they were at it, seized the medicine that Vera worked so hard to obtain,

We went through customs and declared the medication. We willingly gave the bottle [to customs officials], and they confiscated it.

Now, Vera plans on demanding the medication back. And though she is still at risk for being put behind bars, she will continue to seek out a long-term solution for her daughter in the meantime.

About the Author

With almost twenty years spent researching and treating Cancer, I am a well respected author, teacher and health coach.

I do have a list of qualifications, but I find them cumbersome and false. The fact I am a qualified Holistic Doctor is neither here, nor there. Medical education is entirely corrupt and something that can be used against you. I go on courses in order to learn, not to buy a badge to hide behind, or a stick to beat people with.

So much nonsense has been written about me that I never read, or choose to absorb. It’s all about them, never about me. I have been attacked and targeted simply because I have helped people and not been silenced. A common misconception is that I am holistic, but the truth is I do not sit on either side of the imaginary divide between what is “mainstream” and what is “holistic.” There is greed and corruption on both sides and examples of bad practice in every field.
Personally, I am only interested in what works and improves the life of the patient.

In some cases, radiation can work and so am happy to recommend that route, if it works and saves a life in an emergency situation. But there is no ‘one size fits all’ and no cookie cutter protocol. There are many variables in healing the body. We are all individual and all capable of change, so each case must be considered individually. What works for one, may not work for another. Mass medication is wrong.
My research and work has led me all over the world and got me into some tight spots at times, but I am thankful for every twist and turn and have learned a lot from each. I am wiser as a result and see that life teaches us all. I recovered from breast cancer 20 years ago, which has saved my life over and over and made me very aware of how fleeting and precious life is. I live each day to the full and as if it were my last.
I have twenty children, many of whom are adopted, four are mine naturally. I love and adore them all and am honored to have been able to raise them, for now they are strong and independent adults. My children are the most important people in my life.

I despise materialism, I have old fashioned views and feel the modern world has lost much in the way of values and common decency. So I travel the world with my partner and 6-year-old daughter, helping people and sharing knowledge. I am still learning and feel that everyday is a school day. The reason I started this blog was so I could pass on some of this knowledge to others.

I speak the truth about everything and my honest approach shocks many, as I tend to say the things most people would not. I focus on solutions, as I am a problem solver at heart and there is only one truth. Stick to the truth and you will never go far wrong.

I hope you enjoy our blog site and the articles we labor over for your benefit. Please donate to the cause on the page above, as we do not receive a penny in advertising, or sponsorship. It is all from the heart.

Love and light.
