NC Rep. Jones Pushes For Marijuana In Some Cases

WILMINGTON, N.C. U.S. Rep. Walter Jones says North Carolina officials should consider whether marijuana would help children who suffer controllable seizures.


The StarNews of Wilmington reported (http://bit.ly/1dJfVYK ) says he's been approached by the parents of several children who suffer life-threatening illnesses.


Jones says North Carolina officials should consult with medical professionals to determine the appropriateness of allowing the medical use of marijuana in certain cases.


The Republican congressman says the parents have tried everything else to get relief for their children.


For children, marijuana is taken orally and is not smoked.
