Haley signs bill allowing cannabis oil for epilepsy

Posted: Updated:

A bill allowing an extract from the marijuana plant for medicinal purposes has been signed into law by Gov. Nikki Haley.

Columbia NORML, a group that's part of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws posted the news congratulating the governor for her signature on the industrial hemp cultivation and cannabis oil bills.

Doctors say an oil extract from marijuana helps ease the symptoms of epilepsy patients.

South Carolina families have even moved to other states where cannabis oil is legal.

Columbia NORML is pushing for the governor to hold a ceremonial signing of the bill.
