Bill to fix problem with marijuana byproduct law circulated

MADISON - A Republican state senator is circulating a proposal designed to help make a marijuana byproduct available to treat people with seizures a year after it was legalized but still not accessible.

The Legislature last year passed a bill allowing the use of cannabidiol oil, but no one has been able to legally access it because of various state and federal law hurdles.

Sen. Van Wanggaard of Racine on Thursday asked for support of his measure that would eliminate the requirement that people have a prescription for the oil in order to use it.
