Md. Lawmakers Pro-Medical Marijuana Want To Include Treatment For Children

CBS Baltimore

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Some lawmakers are hoping to jump-start Maryland’s stalled medical marijuana program and include treatment for children.

Pat Warren has more on the roadblocks to treatment.

While other states have moved forward on allowing access to marijuana, Maryland’s law remains so restrictive, the medical marijuana program hasn’t been able to get off the ground.

Stephanie Pippen brought her daughter to the state capitol Friday, and as you can imagine, it was not an easy trip.

“My daughter, from a car accident, now has trouble eating. So she is fed through a feeding tube,” Pippen said.

She and her brother also have epilepsy.

“When I put my son and daughter to bed at night, I rub their noses every night and I tell them how proud I am of them,” Pippen said. “I love them very much and I just pray that they wake up every day.”
