CBD, Hemp Bill Introduced in House

A Republican lawmaker has introduced a bill in the U.S. House that would effectively legalize CBD oils and certain hemp-derived products on the national level.

Citing the hundreds of thousands of children nationally with epilepsy, Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania announced Monday he has introduced the Charlotte’s Web Medical Hemp Act of 2014.

The proposal would modify the definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act to exclude CBD oil and therapeutic hemp.

Notably, the bill does not call for full marijuana legalization.

It nonetheless is a further step in the federal arena toward normalization of laws related to cannabis, and it could help create business opportunities for companies that extract CBD oils and develop infused products.

The move follows several states that have recently passed CBD-only legislation across the country.

    Marijuana will be grown, bought, sold,and used with or without Government intervention so why don’t the government do something right for a change and help our economy with legal pot.
