Parents Push For Legal Hemp Oil

KSAL StaffFebruary 18, 2015

Parents of children suffering from seizure disorders are asking Kansas lawmakers to legalize hemp oil.

The House Health and Human Services Committee had a hearing Tuesday on a bill sponsored by Democratic Rep. John Wilson of Lawrence.

Parent Ryan Reed testified that he and his wife feed their 4-year-old son Otis hemp oil with a spoonful of apple sauce three times a day so that he can sleep soundly.

The Reeds once lived in Wilson’s district but moved last year to Colorado Springs last year, because medical marijuana is legal there. The Kansas bill would be limited to hemp oil.

But the Kansas police chiefs’ association opposed the measure and argued it could lead to a broader legalization of marijuana.
