Virginia passes legislation on Medical Marijuana Oil

In a major development, the lawmakers of Virginia on Wednesday passed a legislation, allowing to produce and dispense certain medical marijuana oil for treatment of epilepsy. The Bill was unanimously passed in the Senate.

The new Bill on marijuana would facilitate to grow plants and produce cannabidiol oil for registered epilepsy patients.

However, the Bill would be confined to people with intractable epilepsy for therapeutic marijuana treatment. Marijuana use is still otherwise illegal at a state and federal level.

Senator Dave Marsden sponsored the Bill that expands on last year's legislation allowing marijuana oils to be used to treat epileptic seizures without intoxicating a patient.

The legislation will need to be approved again next year by the General Assembly before it becomes a law.
