The state Senate voted Tuesday to approve legislation that would allow these facilities to grow plants to produce cannabidiol oil for registered epilepsy patients.

The Daily Press reports the legislation will need to be approved again next year by the General Assembly before it goes into law.

Last year the General Assembly voted to allow marijuana oils to be used to treat epileptic seizures.

The bill opens avenues for therapeutic marijuana treatment, specifically involving children with severe forms of epilepsy. Extracting certain elements found in marijuana plants into an oil reduces intoxicating effects while leaving properties that can help prevent seizures, reports The Washington Post.
