There is a proposal to expand the medical marijuana law in Delaware that would allow those under the age of 18 to get low THC oil.

State Senator Ernie Lopez is now pushing to change the current law that only allows adults with a medical card to obtain the drug.

WBOC spoke with the parents of 9 year old Ryley Maedler from Rehoboth Beach who said they want the choice of obtaining the medical marijuana for their child.

They said they have tried other medications to help Ryley who had major survey for bone tumors whose complications have led to seizures.
