BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) –
A national foundation announced support for laws that would make CBD, an oil derived from marijuana, legal for people suffering from seizures.
The Epilepsy Foundation announced its support for bills and laws like Carly’s Law Feb. 20. Dustin Chandler, Carly’s father, said the backing from the Epilepsy Foundation is “huge.” He’s hoping the new support will help Carly’s Law get out of the Alabama Senate and move the Alabama House.
Chandler said he’s fighting not only for his daughter Carly but for hundreds of other parents who have to watch their children take a cocktail of drugs to control their seizures.
