50 under 18 in Oregon using medical marijuana

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A 7-year-old Gladstone girl with leukemia is not the only child in Oregon using medical marijuana.

KATU reports (http://is.gd/hwGi5O ) there are a total of 50 children under 18 and nine of those are under 14.

There is no age limit to be a medical marijuana card holder in Oregon. Those under 18 just need their parents' permission.

Seven-year-old Mykayla Comstock is believed to be the youngest user in the state. Her mother gives her a gram of cannabis oil a day to counter the effects of chemotherapy.
