A fight to get access to lifesaving medication enters its second year at the state capitol. It may be an uphill battle in this conservative state-- because the medication is derived from marijuana.
Last year, Virginia passed a law allowing Beth Collins to give her teenaged daughter, who suffers from severe epilepsy, the one substance that’s successfully treated her seizures -- an oil that comes from marijuana.
“I put it in a tiny dropper, put it under her tongue. Three times a day, she doesn’t like the taste, but it works,” said Collins.
