Carly's Law passes Senate with no opposition

MONTGOMERY - AL -

Some families with sick children are celebrating in the Statehouse. A bill to legalize oil from the marijuana plant medicinally cleared another hurdle.

Carly's Law just passed the Senate following emotional statements. Not one senator voted or spoke against it. One even called it "a work of God."

The measure would allow UAB prescribe the CBD oil to help treat seizures. It would be part of a five year one million dollar study.

Several Alabama families with children suffering from seizure disorders have waited in the Statehouse for this vote for two days. Some say while there are no guarantees it will help their child, it gives them hope. Some of the children don't have much time left.

The bill now moves to the House.
