“It’s hard to commend our state for its decision to allow 25 sick children the use of cannabidiol — a low-THC oil extracted from marijuana plants – when an estimated 1,500 Idaho kids suffering from severe seizures still need the treatment. All those children could have had the opportunity to use the oil had Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter not vetoed legislation in April that would have allowed parents of children suffering from seizure disorders like Dravet syndrome — a rare form of epilepsy that can be fatal – the legal means to treat their kids with cannabidiol. But Otter’s veto ended that discussion — at least for now. After his veto, Otter signed an executive order creating a free program that is providing 25 Idaho children with a trial run of the oil. For the sake of hundreds of Idaho’s children and their families, let’s hope the trial run leads to the legalization of cannabidiol in the Gem State and an end to the inexplicable opposition to this badly needed medicine”/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune
