'Charlotte's Web' not expected to be legal in Oklahoma

Medical marijuana advocates met at the Oklahoma Capitol to argue their case for making “Charlotte's Web” legal in the Sooner State. “Charlotte's Web” is a specific form of medical marijuana that appears to help children with epilepsy. According to a February 12 report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City, it doesn't appear that a bill will be written to make “Charlotte's Web” legal.

Parents and doctors testified about “Charlotte's Web,” urging Oklahoma lawmakers to make this form of medical marijuana legal. It is a non-smoked, non-psychoactive marijuana that seems to decrease the seizures many children with epilepsy experience.

The creator of “Charlotte's Web,” Josh Stanley, said that children who take this marijuana oil have seen an 88% reduction in their seizures. He was at the hearing at the Oklahoma Capitol.

“It's no longer the hippy in the corner sitting there saying 'Free the weed',” Stanley explained. “We're saying 'Save the children'.”

Despite all the pleas from the parents and the doctors of children with epilepsy, it is unlikely that “Charlotte's Web” will become legal in Oklahoma. Enid lawmaker, Senator Patrick Anderson, stated he will not introduce any legislation to make legalize “Charlotte's Web.” Anderson was just one of many lawmakers at the hearing.
