(KUTV) A devout Mormon mom turned herself in to the Weber County Sheriff’s office today on drug charges. She arrived with her husband and two kids in tow, for her formal booking photo.

Enedina Stanger is 27 years old and until now did not have a criminal history. She was charged with felony child endangerment on Oct. 1 after a passerby called police saying they could smell pot in Stanger’s minivan in a Weber County Wal-Mart parking lot. Stanger was sitting in her car with her daughter while her husband and second child ran in to grab milk. Stanger says she was not feeling well and stayed in the car, her daughter decided to sit with her — not wanting her mom to be alone.

The family headed out together because a realtor was showing its home to potential buyers. Stanger grabbed her stash of marijuana on the way out of the house, not wanting anyone to find it and knowing she would need it while gone.

The family made another stop before Police showed up at Wal-Mart where Dad and the two kids left Enedina alone in the van. In pain, Enedina used her time alone to smoke a joint and ease the pain she says she was having as her air passage was partially blocked by movement of her spine.

Stanger was diagnosed with Ehlers -Danlos syndrome several years ago. The genetic syndrome is rare and causes a breakdown of connective tissues allowing for her bones to become dislocated with everyday movement. The movement of her bones causes pain when her muscles overcompensate to hold her skeleton in place.

The Stanger’s children were also just diagnosed with the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome making today’s stop at the jail even more important to Michael and Enedina. Fighting for the legalization of medicinal marijuana in Utah is now a family affair.

“If I have to go to jail or go to prison to make sure my daughters have a new form of medicine, and a way they can survive and not be hurt, and not have medicine that will ruin their life, I will do anything I can.”

Enedina is ready to fight and return back to Utah for the upcoming legislative session.

There are currently two bills set to go before the legislature in the upcoming session dealing with medical marijuana. One would allow for cannabidiol (CBD), the other pushes for the legalization of all forms of medical marijuana. The Stangers’ will push for the latter hoping to help themselves and countless other families they say could be helped by a miracle cure that does not carry the harsh side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
