A story that ran Friday should have said a bill proposing the use of cannabis oil for medical purposes in treatment of epilepsy was approved unanimously Tuesday by all 98 of the delegates who voted. The drug would be administered in liquid form and not contain portions of the cannabis plant that produce the psychoactive ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in marijuana.
Delegate Mark Berg, R-29th, was present but did not vote. Delegate Robert G. Marshall, R-13th, was absent from the vote.
