    Wendy, THANK YOU for your excellent and accurate article. Well done!

    Sounds like this is an issue of great worth. Rep. Gage Froerer, R-Huntsville, is to be commended for pushing this along. Let's just hope it stays under the radar of the federal authorities; this is a state government issue.

    We use plant extracts all the time in medicines.

    Oxycodone, Morphine, from Opium.
    Cocaine and even Novacaine -- from Coca.

    THAT isn't against the law, or the Word of Wisdom....

    Neither should this...

    Great article. I hope the public gets the facts, comprehends them, then rallies around this instead of being leary of the word "marijuana." I am in no way in favor of legalizing marijuana, even like the "medicinal use" as was passed here in AZ. This application bears nothing like it. Her boy and other children need this.

    I am still wondering why they are going to Colorado to get the drugs. There are many legal forms of canniboids that are legal, including the Cannabidiol Oil that they claim to be seeking.

    If they can already get the medication legally in Utah, why are they going to Colorado?

    What's the difference in medically prescribed marijuana and lor tab?

    No brainer to me....

    Oh for crying out loud,
    this should be such a no brainer.

    Hemp is already sold in the stores here as a breakfast cereal.

    Then you RedShirtCalTech should have absolutely no objections whatsoever for them getting and using Alepsia here.
    Thanks for your support.

    To "airnaut" I am not for using Alepsia here because it is still considered an illegal drug. The question remains, what does Alepsia contain that the current legal hemp based drugs do not? There are already other cannabidiol oil based drugs and extracts that are legal here, what makes this one different?
