A picture was worth 1,000 talking points: The Des Moines Register published a photo of Margaret Gaer, 24, West Des Moines, contorted in a chair with her father, Steve, trying to comfort her. The woman is said to have the developmental abilities of a five- or six-year-old child because of chronic seizures she has suffered since birth. Margaret Gaer was brought to the Iowa Capitol as her parents lobbied for medical marijuana treatment that would help control her fits.
