CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. —
What is currently an illegal drug could be the last resort for some families who want to get their child the care they need.
Tennessee Democrats passed a resolution pushing for the legalization of medical marijuana.
Kristie Carter, from Soddy Daisy, says it could dramatically change her daughter, Daylynn’s life.
Daylynn Carter looks and acts like your typical 7 year old, except for a couple things.
For starters, her mom says Daylynn is a tom boy.
“Daylynn loves superheroes. She says she’s a superhero and I believe she is,” Carter said. “She’s a tough kid.”
Daylynn believes she’s a superhero because she’s been able to overcome more than most kids her age.

Daylynn is adopted.

“We thought it was behavioral issues,” Carter
