Mykayla takes pills or eats brownies made with marijuana-infused butter.
It's a topic that is dividing a lot of people, even within the medical community.
A pair of Seattle doctors weighed in on it.
"Normally I don't authorize children to use cannabis or medical marijuana, however, I think certain circumstances it would be appropriate," said Dr. Greg Carter. "I think in the setting of cancer, such as leukemia, I think it could be appropriate."
An expert in adolescent medicine at Seattle Children's Hospital disagrees, saying she would never recommend it to a child under any circumstance.
"There are many studies that look at 15 year olds to 18 year olds who use marijuana during that time and they lost IQ points," said Dr. Leslie Walker. "They had brain damage that was not recovered when they stopped using."
For young Mykayla's mother, it was a decision she felt needed to be made.
"I felt like I was going to lose my child at that point," she told The Oregonian. "I knew I would do whatever it took to save her life."
