Parents of children with seizure disorders now have access to cannabidiol (CBD) oil in Wisconsin. With a doctor’s certification, it’s legal to possess CBD oil, which lacks the properties of marijuana that cause the “high.”
The Republican-dominant Legislature passed this attempt after an older version stalled, according to WBAY 2 News. Senate Bill 10 was signed into law in Burlington. Burlington is the hometown of Lydia, who passed away at the age of 6 due to complications from a rare form of epilepsy.
The signing of Senate Bill 10 was quite symbolic. The support by Wisconsin lawmakers for CBD oil has been overwhelmingly positive this legislative session.
