Wisconsin Children Gain Access to Medical Marijuana

While medical marijuana is not legal in Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker signed a bill yesterday allowing CBD extract for children with severe seizure disorders, this is only children.

From the Journal Times of Racine, Wisconsin:

“Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill legalizing cannabidiol, or CBD, which has reportedly been shown to work for children in Colorado. It was illegal in Wisconsin because it contains a small amount of THC, the component present in marijuana, but advocates noted that CBD could never be used as recreational marijuana.

The bill was written narrowly to apply only to CBD, which must be administered by a physician and is not considered by advocates to be “medical marijuana.”

This is the first step … at least Wisconsin families will not have to move to Colorado to seek the treatment these kids need.
