A panel of state Assembly lawmakers gave its stamp of approval Wednesday to bills that would legalize the possession of cannabis oil, a derivative of marijuana used to treat children who suffer from seizures.
The bills, the Senate Bill 10 and Assembly Bill 49, are identical. They would change state law to let people possess cannabis oil as long as they have a certification showing the substance is being used to treat a medical condition. The certification must also be current and have been issued in the previous year.
The panel voted 12–0 to approve the bills Wednesday. The next step is for the full Assembly to vote on them.
