Help support medical refugees, buy my book!

A percentage of every book sale is donated to Patches of Hope, our organic garden where we grow food for medical refugees, and other patients that cannot afford healthy food due to high medical costs.

Welcome to my website.

My name is Alexis Bortell

Yeah, I know you're thinking, "How can an 11-year-old have their own website?"

Well, to answer that I guess you have to understand I am not a ‘normal’ kid whatever that means. I have been through a lot since I was 7 which is when I started having seizures.

I lost my friend and role model, Vincent Lopez, in 2015. He taught me a lot about writing speeches and talking to legislators. I promised him I would continue his work.

I hope I make him proud.

Which is why an 11-year old wrote a book about medical cannabis.

Let's talk, I think it's extremely important to get the truth out to people
who really don’t know  what to think about medical cannabis.

Help us get the word out by ordering your copy of "Let's Talk About Medical Cannabis."

Our goal is to get this book into the hands of every skeptical legislator in America.

Ready to help support medical refugees? Buy my book!

My goal is to get this book into the hand of every skeptical legislator so we can have smart cannabis legislation across the world. I want to keep families in there own home and stop people from having to become medical refugees.

Thank you to our special partners!

"I hope by the end of the book you realize that a lot of what you have heard about ‘marijuana’ and particularly medical marijuana simply isn’t true."

Let's Talk

It is my mission is to let the whole world know how cannabis saved my life.

Watch Alexis spread the word about medical cannabis at rallies, marches, and conferences

I just received an amazing gift from @josebelen_mz And Dr. Barry Gordon. I love it!

I recommend you go to and get one today.

It’s beautiful and I know right where I am putting it.

Thanks again and if you are ever in Colorado come see us.

Don’t worry, with “decriminalization” and “legalization”, they will make “treatment” mandatory and those admission numbers and their profits will increase. No major political party cares about individual liberty and freedom. They probably don’t even know what negative liberty is.

WOW: A new federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study shows that teen treatment admissions for marijuana fell sharply in most states with legalization.

That runs counter to prohibitionist claims that reform would spur youth cannabis use. 2
