NASHVILLE (AP) — Legislation that would allow a person to possess cannabis oil under certain circumstances is headed to the governor for his consideration.

The proposal was unanimously approved 26-0 in the Senate and 95-0 in the House on Monday.

Republican Sen. Becky Massey of Knoxville, a sponsor of the proposal, emphasized the measure is not a "marijuana" bill, but allows certain amounts of cannabis oil to be used for the treatment of seizures, particularly in the case of children.

Massey says the legislation contains provisions to make sure the oil is not abused.

The governor is expected to review the legislation when it reaches his desk.
