Alex Renton, 19, died last night two weeks after the start of his controversial cannabis oil treatment Elixinol, brought in from the United States with special government approval. Alex had been in Wellington Hospital in an induced coma for two months, in "status epilepticus", a kind of prolonged seizure and it was always going to be an uphill battle for him, Casinader said The medicinal cannabis allowed Alex an element of a normal life again and the family has no regrets in pursuing its use. This is a story of a mother's constant battle against bureaucracy and the government in the hope that despite the bleakness of the situation there was something that would help their son, Casinader said. "In the last two weeks on the oil he was settled, he was calm...they started to see a flicker of light in his eyes and felt like they were starting to get their son back." Alex's mother Rose said it was extraordinary to her that he had been given so many synthetic drugs and different types of medications but a natural oil wasn't able to be prescribed. The case almost unwittingly became the face of the medicinal cannabis movement in New Zealand with huge public interest across the country. Casinader said the family had to negotiate a fine line in balancing their relationship with the hospital and media. Rose Renton fought hard for the cannabis oil treatment and publicity around the case has prompted other families to say they want the same for their children. There's no shortage of people around the world who believe it is a safe and viable option without having other drugs available to help their kids, Casinader said. "But there's a real battle for advocates to convince health officials in New Zealand that it's worthwhile and safe." Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne says Alex's case gained public interest because it was unusual and different and "touched the nation's heartstrings". CONTINUED IN COMMENTS

"Each case must be judged on its own merits," he said. Meanwhile Alex's family is planning a "memorial celebration" for Saturday July 11. "We will gather to share our wonderful memories of our beautiful boy," the family said about the celebration at Broadgreen Historic House in Stoke, Nelson."
