10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">“Ya I signed it. I wouldn't sign it if i didn't think it was a good idea.\" said Governor Walker.

10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">“We have seizures that don’t stop. In fact that happened to us last week, the day of prom. We had to give medication that makes you so sick, but you have to do it otherwise the seizures don’t stop.” Jennifer said.

10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">“The next step is going to be really interesting, we have to get doctors to prescribe it.” she said.


10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">Jennifer says she hopes to have the cannabis oil for her daughter Meghan by October.
