Oklahoma House Votes 98 to 2 to Allow Use of Cannabis Extracts for Epilepsy

Oklahoma’s Housecbd of Representatives has voted 98 to 2 to approve House Bill 2154, a proposal to allow the use of low-THC cannabis extracts for children with severe epilepsy.

Under the proposed law, a child with epilepsy who receives a recommendation from a qualified physician would be authorized to possess and use cannabis extracts – including tinctures and oils – that are high in CBD (cannabidiol), yet low in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). University medical centers would be allowed to produce, dispense and study the medicine.

House Bill 2154, known as Katie’s Law, is named after the niece of State Representative Jon Echols who suffers from Dravet syndrome, a form of epilepsy.

House Bill 2154 has been sent to the Senate for consideration.

    My son had what’s called, “infantile spasms” it’s also a form of epilepsy and 80% of kids diagnosed end up developmentally delayed from the seizures going uncontrolled. Many people in my support group have used the oils and it works 100% of the time. I’m all for it!!! Good job Oklahoma now these kids have a chance at being seizure free and not being developmentally delayed. <3

    Right u are they also need to recall the 2 no vote politicians with yes vote one also. CBD oil is a step in right direction. t will be rescheduled federally soon and that will help the pro cause because anti-weeds will no longer to say IT’S ILLEGAL FEDERALLY. what will they say when its legal again federally ( its only been illegal 78 yrs only 1% of its excistence. )

    Now, if they’d just care about the pain patients, and allow high Thc as pain management in dry herb form, as well as, hashish oils, Rick Simpsons oil, B.H.O, co2 oils, and P.H.O. Then maybe I can move back and live where my kids live. Please realize, it’s not just kids needing care. R.S.O. CURES CANCER CELLS, R.S.O. AND CONCENTRATES HELP RELIEVE PAIN, and allow Patients like me, to eat they severe pain. Time to revise it more OKLAHOMA, GET W THE PROGRAM, I WANT TO LIVE W MY KIDS!!!
