Governor Laura Kelly signed Senate Bill 28, better known as “Claire and Lola’s Law,” into law this afternoon.
This law provides defense against persecution for possessing or using CBD oils with low levels of THC to treat certain medical conditions.
It also stops state agencies from beginning child removal proceedings based on a parents’ possession of or use of cannabidiol treatment.
Governor Kelly was pleased with the progress of the bill.
“This is the first step in addressing the health needs of many Kansans, but we still have a long way to go,” Kelly said. “I’m hopeful the legislature will review this issue comprehensively next session.”
This law will make families like Claire and Lola’s able to treat their children’s conditions using CBD oils.
The girls suffer from microcephaly, which claimed the life of the older sister, Claire Hartley, in December.
“Claire and Lola’s Law” goes into effect on July 1.
