For the first time in Indiana, a medical marijuana bill made it to the Senate floor. And surprisingly, the Indiana Senate has approved the use of medical marijuana oil to treat epilepsy.
Under the new bill, pharmacies would be permitted to dispense cannabidiol oil (CBD), according to Fox 59 News. Doctors, nurses, patients and caregivers would all be part of a registry.
The bill requires that 0.3-percent THC or less be in the oil. The CBD content must also be at least 5-percent. The oil cannot contain any additional controlled substances.
The next stop for this bill is the Indiana House.
