Branstad Likely To Sign Cannabis Oil Bill

WEBSTER CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Gov. Terry Branstad says he'll "very likely" sign a bill allowing the use of cannabis oil to treat severe epilepsy.

The Daily Freeman Journal reports Branstad was asked Thursday morning at a town hall meeting in Webster City about whether he would sign a bill allowing the medical use of oil derived from the cannabis plant as a last-resort treatment for seizures caused by a chronic form of epilepsy.

Tiffany Hoffmann told Branstad her daughter has daily seizures and might benefit from the oil.

Branstad responded that he doesn't have the bill and reserves judgment until reading the final measure. But he added, "I think it's very likely that we will and I really hope that it does make a difference for your daughter and the other kids."
