Ky. House panel Approves trial us of cannabis oil


A bill to legalize an oil extract from marijuana or hemp plants to treat childhood seizures has picked up momentum in the Kentucky General Assembly.

The measure sailed through the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. The panel sent the bill to the full House after hearing from a woman who wants her son to be treated with the non-intoxicating oil.

Under the bill, patients could be treated with the oil at the medical research hospitals at the University of Kentucky and University of Louisville.


The legislation is Senate Bill 124.
