Va. Senate Passes Bill to Allow Medical Marijuana Oils
The oil would be used as an alternative treatment for those who suffer from epilepsy.
The bill was passed with a 37-1 vote, after members of the Senate listened to testimonies from families who have children who are battling the disease.
Now, the bill will have to pass the House with a two thirds majority. If it passes, it would then head to the Governor.
Currently in Virginia, medical marijuana can only be used for the treatment of cancer and glaucoma.
