North Carolina Senate Rules Committee Unanimously Passes Medical Cannabis Bill

North Carolina’s Senate Rules Committee has unanimously approved House Bill 1220, a measure which would legalizemedcanptsd cannabis oil for medical purposes. The proposal has already passed the state’s House of Representatives with an 11 to 2 vote, and now heads to the full Senate, where its passage would send it to the governor for consideration.

Under House Bill 1220, those with seizure disorders who receive a recommendation from a neurologist would be authorized to possess cannabis extracts that are low in THC and high in CBD, as long as they receive a registration card from the state’s Department of Health. Neurologists would be authorized to dispense the medicine.

The bill also includes a provision that allows and encourage colleges in the state to produce cannabis extracts for the use in studying its potential in treating “intractable childhood epilepsy”.

    honestly my question is when are they gonna fully legalize north carolina coming from a person with severe bipolar and adhd i been on every medicine the doctor has tried for me since i was 5 years old and pills are not natural at all they are addictive the only thing that ever kept me sain was real herb and honestly people who struggle like me with medicines should not have to wait long i full support this and i would vote for legalization anyday less people with good records wont get in trouble as much and cops can focus more on the bad drugs out there and they make money off the taxes it is a win win

  1. honestly I don’t think its potent enough tbh I think its like smoking reggie all over again which does nothing for us older folks that has been smoking for years

    Can someone please explain how this could be a good thing?
    If you have cancer or 12 other diseases that cannabis is good for, you’re screwed !
    You can’t grow your own Medicine ! You are made a slave to Pharmie-Corp “Extracts” without the benefits of “FULL EXTRACT CANNABIS OIL” ! THC is a curative Medicine, with or without CBD ! This just takes another Healing Tool out of the hands of poor people and binds them to the Pharmaceutical Industry Profits !!!! No Self-Healing without Industry PROFITS !!!!!!!!!!!!!
