C.J. Harris, a Highschool football player who was recruited to Auburn University has lost his spot on the roster because his use of medically prescribed cannabis oil violated NCAA rules.

Harris had his first seizure in 2013 when he was in the seventh grade and was stable until three years later when he began to have multiple episodes each month. Doctors prescribed Keppra, but drug made him irritable and missed doses could result in more seizures. He then switched to Cannabis oil, which is legal for qualifying patients in Georgia, and has not had a seizure since.

Harris was cleared to play football in high school by his family physician and his medical paperwork was in order.

The family of C.J. told the Washington Post it is considering legal options.
