NC Senate passes CBD oil bill to treat specific diseases

Hopefully this is the beginning of a movement:

What Senate Bill 168 would do is allow CBD oil treatments for all individuals experiencing autism, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease and mitochondrial disease. The bipartisan bill has two key Senate leaders as primary sponsors in Sens. Ralph Hise, R-McDowell, and Floyd McKissick Jr., D-Durham. State Sen. Paul Lowe, D-Forsyth, is a co-sponsor. The same bill was not acted upon by the Senate Health Committee in 2017.

Both bills say the legislature has determined that current available treatment options “have been ineffective” for autism, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease and mitochondrial disease. “Hemp extract shows promise in treating these chronic conditions,” the legislation says.

I'm glad to see this, but we really need to pursue medical marijuana and higher THC content CBD products if we truly want to combat NC's opioid problem.

That's yours truly on the Seattle ocean front

Or Sound front. Whatever, this picture was taken at a Hempfest celebration a few years before Washington state legalized marijuana. It was a huge event (100,000+ attendance), including dozens of Doctors (MDs) talking about ongoing research. Yeah, there were some uber-spiritual flakes there, too, but I can usually figure them out after the 3rd or 4th sentence. ;)
