Senate Bill 52, legalizing low-THC extract, has passed the Indiana House. The vote was unanimous (93-0).
Following a few amendments, the House voted to move the bill forward to the Senate, according to Fox 59 News. CBD oil is only permitted for those with epilepsy currently in Indiana. This bill expands access to all Hoosiers.
Senator Michael Young said, “So many people have benefitted from using CBD oil to treat a variety of problems like epilepsy, cancer and anxiety. Since we are limiting how much THC can be in the product, there is no risk for people to use this to get high. My hope with this bill is that more Hoosiers will be able to use this product to treat their ailments.”
Retailers across the state would be permitted to sell the 0.3-percent THC or less oil over-the-counter.
The Senate must agree to the changes made to the bill. If it agrees, the bill will be passed onto Governor Holcomb to be signed into law.
