Description

This bill would have removed cannabidiol (CBD) from the schedule of controlled substances. CBD preparations are incredibly beneficial for people suffering from intractable epilepsy and pain, and have no psychoactive properties. This bill could have enabled the growing of certain industrial hemp cultivars high in CBD, and significantly increased the commercial potential of industrial hemp.

Outcome

HB 351 died in the House Judiciary Committee.
