State Assembly Passes CBD Oil Bill

The Wisconsin Legislature has passed a bill long sought by parents of children who suffer from seizures. The state Assembly voted 98-0 Tuesday to legalize possession of CBD oil, a marijuana extract used to treat seizures. The oil doesn’t produce a high. The Senate overwhelmingly approved the bill on a 31-1 vote. The bill now heads to Gov. Scott Walker for his signature. Walker says he supports it. Democrats said the bill should have gone farther by allowing the sale of CBD oil in the state.
