Connecticut Lawmakers Consider Allowing Medical Marijuana For Children

CONNECTICUT:  Connecticut lawmakers are considering a bill that would eliminate the age restriction on medical marijuana.

Several parents and their young children recently testified before lawmakers in Hartford on the need to remove the 18-year-old age restriction, WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reported.

The Judiciary Committee is now considering the bill. Rep. William Tong, the panel’s co-chair, said the testimony from some of the children suffering epileptic seizures was heartbreaking.
