Bill would legalize cannabis oil

There's a proposal to legalize a treatment option for children who suffer from seizures.

Democratic Rep. Robb Kahl of Monona says cannabis oil is different from medical marijuana. He says some parents want to get it for their children, but they don't want to break the law.

Kahl is working with Republican Rep. Scott Krug of Nekoosa on the bill. Krug is the chair of the Assembly's committee on children and families, and he's holding a hearing on the proposal, on Wednesday.

Kahl says they need to act quickly. The Legislative session is expected to end sometime next month, and Kahl says families can't wait until 2015.
