SCOTCH PLAINS, N.J. (AP) — The family of a New Jersey toddler who became a symbol in a push to change the state’s medical marijuana laws this year is moving.
Meghan and Brian Wilson of Scoth Plains tell The Philadelphia Inquirer (http://bit.ly/18OfIpj) they’re heading to Colorado because there they can buy an edible form of a strain of marijuana that they believe could help their 2 ½-year-old daughter Vivian with her severe epilepsy.
The girl has been issued a card that qualifies her for medical marijuana. But the three dispensaries now open in New Jersey sell the drug only in smokable form.
The family were leaders in a successful push this year for a law that allows the sale of more medical marijuana strains and edible forms for minors in New Jersey.
