SCOTCH PLAINS, N.J.—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 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 1/2-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.
