Legislature approves marijuana oil research

BIRMINGHAM (TAB) — Legislation that would fund a University of Alabama at Birmingham Department of Neurology study on the effectiveness of using cannabidiol (CBD) oil — a marijuana derivative — to treat severe seizures will make its way to Gov. Robert Bentley’s desk to be signed. According to news reports, Bentley planned to sign the bill after his legal staff reviewed it. Senate Bill 174 — known as “Carly’s Law” and named after a 3-year-old Birmingham girl who experiences uncontrollable seizures caused by a genetic disorder — was passed by the Alabama House of Representatives in the early morning hours of March 20 by a vote of 97–0.
