A bill permitting the research and medicinal use of cannabis oil to treat neurological disorders has cleared the Kentucky House. Families with ailing children gathered into the House chambers to witness the vote on the bill.
“I feel like we’ve won the lottery. I never thought it would happen. I honestly didn’t.”
That’s Rita Wooton, overjoyed at the passage of Senate Bill 124, which will allow her son, Eli, to receive cannabidiol treatment at the University of Kentucky for his chronic seizures.
