After hearing the emotional pleas from parents whose children suffer through horrendous epileptic seizures, a NC House panel unanimously approved a measure to allow the use of hemp oil for medical treatment of these seizure disorders. The oil that is produced from a specialized marijuana compound has unique healing properties people who suffer from epilepsy who can experience upwards of 200-300 seizures a day. At present they are forced to take medicine that doesn’t work and carries debilitating side effects. While this oil contains incredible healing properties it can not get you high.
Opponents of the bill are concerned that this could open the door to the passing of medicinal marijuana across the board. I’m crossing my fingers their worries are valid. The bill is on its way to the NC House Finance Committee. We’ll keep you updated as things progress.
