Medical Cannabis Bill Approved by Idaho Senate Committee

Legislation cannaoilto allow for the use of cannabis oil for the treatment of epilepsy in Idaho has been approved for introduction by the Senate State Affairs Committee. The vote was unanimous.

The proposal, which is likely to receive a public hearing in the near future, is sponsored by Senator Curt McKenzie, who is the Chairman of the Senate State Affairs Committee.

Legislation to legalize the medical use of cannabis oil is continuing to gain popularity throughout the United States. In addition to numerous states legalizing the medicine last year, several states are taking the same approach this year; just this week Virginia’s governor signed a medical cannabis extract bill into law, Georgia’s House of Representatives voted 158 to 2 to legalize medical cannabis extracts, and Utah’s Senate Judiciary Committee voted to do the same (as did Kansas’ House Committee on Health and Human Services).

In December, an initiative to legalize the recreational use of cannabis kicked off in Idaho.

    Unfortunately I’m Italian (sorry if I can’t give any vote) but I’d be interested because I’m epileptic… It is possible to receive news concerning the use of medical marijuana in Italy? All I know is that it is legal since 2013 but… Where?!? I’m also a nurse (I don’t know if it can be useful…)
