VIRGINIA:  Virginia’s Republican-dominated House of Delegates voted Tuesday for a bill that would protect users of a form of medical marijuana from state prosecution.

The legislation, which passed 98-0, would allow the use of two oils extracted from marijuana that lack the plant’s intoxicating properties but help alleviate debilitating seizures. The bill provides a way for epileptics or their legal guardians to avoid prosecution for possession of cannabidiol oil (also known as CBD) and THC-A oil.

“You can’t get high from it,” said David Albo (R-Fairfax), who sponsored the House bill.

The legislation has been pushed by parents of children with epilepsy, who they say their children could be helped by the oils.
