CANNABIS OIL
Gov. Beshear signs bill allowing cannabis oil to treat medical conditions

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 10, 2014 4:22 PM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


Doctors at two university research hospitals can now prescribe oil derived from marijuana or hemp to treat patients.

Gov. Steve Beshear signed SB.124 into law on Thursday. It allows doctors at the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville research hospitals to prescribe cannabidiol to treat patients. Supporters note the oil has been particularly effective in treating seizures in children.

In a news release, Beshear said he signed the bill into law because it only allowed the oil with the permission from a doctor at a research hospital or if someone is participating in a trial administered by the federal Food and Drug Administration.
