State lawmaker pushing for legalization of marijuana oil

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, N.C. - State Rep. Pat McElraft, R-Carteret, is pushing for the legalization of marijuana oil.

McElraft says she is planning to file a bill to legalize it because research shows it may help children with dravet syndrome, which causes seizures.

Last year the general assembly defeated a bill that would have legalized medical marijuana, but McElraft says her bill is different because it focuses only on children and the oil.
