Wisconsin epileptic patients are still waiting for doctors to give them a marijuana-based anti-seizure drug two months after Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill allow the medication's use. Walker signed a bill in April allowing doctors to dispense cannabidiol, a marijuana derivative used to treat epileptics' seizures. About half-a-dozen other states have authorized its use. Federal officials haven't approved the drug, however. The Wisconsin bill allows doctors to dispense it only if the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approves handing it out through a clinical trial. The Wisconsin Medical Society says it hasn't heard of any doctors dispensing the medication and state Department of Safety and Public Standards officials say no one has approached the agency for help in starting a trial.
