Kids Can Use Medical Marijuana
(Springfield, IL) -- Kids who suffer from seizures, cancer, MS, and other debilitating diseases are going to get a bit of relief come January. A new law allows doctors to prescribe non-smokable forms of marijuana to people under 18 to help control their pain and reduce the numbers of seizures they have each day. Parents from all across the state pushed for the law and said they'd move to Colorado to get help for their sick kids if lawmakers didn't act. They say traditional medications weren't working and were often making their kids' conditions worse.
