Ashley Epis, 8, of Chico Calif., who is pictured on a series of billboards advocating medical marijuana, poses before one of the signs on Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2003, in Oakland, Calif. Epis' father, Bryan Epis, is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence for conspiracy to grow marijuana.

The Third-grader said she agreed to be on the billboard. 'I want everybody to know that my dad is not a criminal,' she said.

McVay and Thomas are calling for U.S. President Bush to pardon Byron Epis who was convicted, and will soon be sentenced to a mandatory minimum of ten years in a federal prison, for growing marijuana to treat his back pain and for providing it to other seriously ill people.
