Commonsense in Utah. Never thought I would ever see the day.
This is a no brainer for Utah! Good job getting past the house. Now we just need
to get past the senate. The benefit that this medicine could have for children
with seizures is enormous. I for one am glad that Utah is waking up to the
realization that this medicine can help a lot of people, not just with seizures
but many other illness's as well.
God created these children with infirmaties, God created the Hemp oil that
can help them and bless them.and yet, Some people are using
the lame "God said so" excuse from allowing other people the Free Agency
to help their own children under a cafeful eye of a Doctor and the State?Pathetic.I'm glad to see the Utah State House looking
Wow!62-11 That's great!God Bless the children.
One very important clarification: This article seems to imply that the Utah
Medical Association continued to oppose the bill. Not at all true. In fact, the
UMA changed their position and *endorsed* the bill's passage through the
I am still trying to figure out why this bill was needed. It was already legal
in Utah to buy FDA approved drugs containing hemp oil (CBDs and some THC) and
herbal supplements and lotions containing hemp oils.Is there
something different about the hemp oil that they are legalizing that is
different than all of the other forms of hemp oil that you could already get in
RedShirt, that's a perfectly legitimate question. In short, yes, this
legislation was very necessary for two reasons: 1. Currently available products
contain such a low concentration of CBD that they had no demonstrated
therapeutic effect for epilepsy, and refining higher concentrations from the
necessary volumes of these sources would be ridiculously expensive, which meant
that 2. A hybrid cannabis plant with much higher concentrations of CBD had to be
developed, but this new hybrid fell into a legal gray area. This bill provides
the necessary clarity by legally recognizing that this hybrid - and its
derivatives - meet the federal guidelines for hemp, which are dry-weight
concentrations of THC of less than 0.3%. It also specifically permits Utah
citizens to possess this high-CBD oil via a state-issued and
neurologist-endorsed exemption card.
RedShirtUSS Enterprise, UTI am still trying to figure out why this
bill was needed. ======== Then read the bill.HB105 also allows for exceptions for State run Universities to grow and do
research with the plant, something else currently NOT legal.
This vote has strengthened my faith in Utah's government.Common
sense instead of dumb rhetoric.
