Corbett Shifts Stance On Medical Marijuana

May 2, 2014

Governor Tom Corbett has apparently softened his position on medical marijuana — at least on one type of medical marijuana treatment.

A Corbett spokesperson, Christine Cronkright, says the Governor has proposed that lawmakers look into legislation that would provide access to treatments for the families of children with severe seizure disorders.  It would come through the use of CBD, an oil derivative of cannabis that is taken orally.

Cronkright says Corbett has been studying the issue since late last year, and after meeting with the parents of several children with seizure disorders, has asked the state’s Health Secretary and Physician General to do research.

The Governor’s proposed pilot program would be conducted utilizing leading children’s hospitals in Pennsylvania.
