WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

State Senator Thom Goolsby, of Wilmington, is taking the lead on a bill to allow medicinal oil made from marijuana to be used to treat a rare form of epilepsy.

Goolsby said he has requested the bill be placed in his senate judiciary committee for review.

He said several local law enforcement officers asked for his support on the bill, after seeing reports on the Morley family who moved to Colorado to get similar treatments for their daughter Mia.

Goolsby says he's making it a priority to push the bill through the senate.
