Fallin Signs Bill Legalizing Marijuana Oil For Medical Purposes

Governor Mary Fallin signed a bill authorizing a medical pilot program allowing the medically supervised use of CBD.

OKLAHOMA:  Governor Mary Fallin signed a bill authorizing a medical pilot program allowing the medically supervised use of cannabidiol (CBD), a low THC non-intoxicating derivative of marijuana.

Reports from some families indicate CBD may be used to effectively treat children who suffer from epileptic seizures and help reduce the number and intensity of those seizures.

 HB 2154 was authored by Rep. Jon Echols and Sen. Brian Crain. The bill is known as “Katie and Cayman’s Law,” named after a young relative of Echols and a family-friend of Crain, both of whom suffer from seizures.

“This bill will help get sick children potentially life-changing medicine,” said Fallin. “By crafting the legislation in a way that allows for tightly controlled medical studies, we can ensure we are researching possible treatments in a responsible and scientific way.”

    Has the drug issue in states legalizing mj gone down? Legalize and provide rules. Is Oklahoma afraid of losing the money those cops/sheriffs who bust casual users get in fines? Can’t buy those police cars. Tax it!! Better than tobacco based on the affects to our lungs? What about those who are affected by second hand tabacco smoke? Don’t smokers use tabacco to cal nerves and relax .. Doesn’t marijuauna do the same thing,SAFER?
