CBD Legalization Passes Another Hurdle
Today, the push to legalize prescription CBD oil had passed another hurdle.
The Idaho Statesman Reports: Idaho's House has advanced a bill allowing residents to use oil extracted from cannabis plants in staunchly anti-marijuana Idaho as long as the product is prescribed by a licensed practitioner.
Surprisingly, the measure passed with a 59-11 vote. I recently wrote about the legalization of CBD oil and why I'm for it. CBD oil is used safely by people who have Epilepsy, Parkson's disease, and Diabetes. There is no way to overdose on CBD.
Last year, when I lived in Portland Oregon, I would sometimes use CBD oil legally. It helped me with my with stress levels, anxiety, and inflammation. It also helped me achieve more restful and deeper night sleep. Another positive could be with Idaho's opioid epidemic this could help prevent people in our community from starting the addiction to pain pills, to begin with.
The Statesman's also reported that there are currently, 18 states that allow the use of "low THC, high cannabidiol (CBD)" products for medical reasons in limited situations or as a legal defense.
The bill still must past the Senate and get a signature for the Governor before it becomes law. It's important to note that Governor Otter has vetoed this bill in the past citing that more research needed to be done.
If you are passionate about the legalization of CBD oil on either side, I urge you to reach out to your local representatives in the Senate and the Governor himself. There's still a chance of this bill not passing into law. Your voice counts and should be heard.
