Alexis Bortell, along with her father and other plaintiffs, including former National Football League player Marvin Washington, filed suit in the Southern District of NY against the attorney general as well as the Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Agency.
Alexis Bortell's lawsuit to legalize medical marijuana was inspired by her move to Colorado a few years ago, reports Denver's FOX 31. She suffered daily seizures.

Alexis, whose family moved to Colorado from Texas to take advantage of the state's legalization of recreational and medical marijuana, had been suffering since she was 7 from a form of epilepsy that can not be safely controlled with FDA-approved treatments and procedures, the lawsuit says. She wants to be treated like an American citizen and not just a state citizen.
The treatment has been effective for more than two years, and Bortell judges it, "a lot better than brain surgery", she told Rolling Stone.
Her father, Dean Bortell said that he doesn't understand or support the archaic laws of Texas, and how come cannabis is still a Schedule 1 drug, just like heroin. At this moment, Texas does have a law on medical marijuana under The Compassionate Use Act signed by Gov. Greg Abbott in 2015.
He also admitted that the Department of Justice is now prevented from using its resources to interfere with states that legalize marijuana.
