(Madison, WI) -- Minnesota families with kids who suffer from seizures might soon be able to find medical marijuana treatment just across the border. The Wisconsin Senate unanimously passed a bill that would legalize the use of the marijuana compound cannabidiol or C-B-D for children with epilepsy. The measure is on its way to Governor Walker after passage last week in the Wisconsin Assembly. Governor Dayton proposed a study of the therapeutic uses of C-B-D as a compromise to Minnesota's medical marijuana bill, but advocates say it will take years before patients here have legal access. At least one Minnesota mom moved with her daughter to Colorado for a marijuana oil that she claims reduces the girl's seizures by 80 percent.
