HARTFORD – After nearly four hours of debate and eight failed Republican amendments that would have changed the state’s medical-marijuana program, the Senate voted 23-11 late Friday to allow seriously ill children to participate.
For Dana Haddox-Wright, whose daughter battles daily seizures, the vote meant hope and perhaps future medical breakthroughs.
The bill, which previously won approval in the House, goes to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy for final review.
If signed into law, the legislation would let parents and guardians, with the authorization of two physicians, give their children liquid or edible forms of the drug. Medicinal cannabis has been found to help children with epilepsy and neurological disorders that cause seizures.
