Ky. bill would permit cannabis oil as medical treatment

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Cannabis oil may soon be used to treat children suffering from seizures.

The Kentucky Senate Health and Welfare committee passed a bill that would allow trial use.

Cannabis oil is a marijuana extract.

It's believed the bill has enough support to pass the Senate and House.

It would allow use of the non-intoxicating medical marijuana oil when it's recommended by doctors practicing at a state university research hospital.
