Days after Charlee’s Law passes, Charlee Nelson dies at age 6
With grace and determination 6 year old Charlee Nelson's family brought the Utah legislature to its feet this week in an unprecedented and practically unanimous vote in the house to approve a Cannabis extract bill. Her family knew it was too late for this bill to help Charlee but they fought on anyway in hopes that other children could have a brighter future.
This story is a stark reminder of the real people that are affected by the delay in our own legislature. We need to move forward and stop allowing lives to be lost while we gather more information on a plant that has been studied and used for decades.
Our thoughts and prayers as a community go out to the Nelson family today.
