If CBD Oil Becomes Law Monday, It Could Have Far Reaching Effects

Camp Candlelight, sponsored by the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona, is standing out as one of its campers became the first child to openly use cannabis oil during her stay.

TENNESSEE:  Legalizing cannabis oil for use as an alternative medicine is coming up for a full vote in the Tennessee legislature on Monday after sailing through every committee.

An amendment was added to the bill during the House Health Committee which added access to people suffering from epilepsy, opening up the number of patients who could potentially have access to the oil.

The bill, introduced by Rep.
