JEROME, Idaho (AP) - A Gooding mother who gave her daughter butter infused with marijuana to treat the girl’s seizure-like symptoms has been denied custody of the child.

The Idaho Statesman reports (https://bit.ly/2i35nNE ) that Kelsey Osborne was charged in Twin Falls County with a misdemeanor count of injury to a child.

In Jerome County, she fought a legal battle for custody of her children.

Osborne gave her 3-year-old pot-infused butter to calm her and help with the seizures. When she later took the toddler to the doctor, she tested positive for marijuana and the doctor reported it.

The incident prompted the Department of Health and Welfare to take Osborne’s two children and place them in the custody of her ex-husband.

Her lawyer Tom Curl said Thursday that the judge ruled that for now, Osborne still cannot have custody of her children.
