NORTH CAROLINA: The push to legalize “Charlotte’s Web”, a strain of medical marijuana in liquid form given to children suffering from pediatric epilepsy, is increasing in both North and South Carolina.
Makers of the drug say this particular strain can’t get you high. Parents agree, and are uprooting their lives in the Carolinas to move to Colorado, where it’s legal, to get it for their children.
WBTV has been investigating this drug for weeks.
We found politicians – both Democrat and Republican – who say they’re advocates. We couldn’t find any politician or group saying they’re flat-out against oils high in CBD.
“You can’t find the other side, because there is no other side,” says North Carolina State Representative Kelly Alexander, a Democrat from Mecklenburg County.
