The Missouri House has given approval to a bill that allows the use of a cannabis extract in the treatment of epilepsy. The house has endorsed the legislation that would permit the use of the hemp extract known as “CBD” which would give patients little of the substance that makes marijuana users feel high. Patients would need to have epilepsy that a neurologist has determined is not responding to at least three treatment options. Growers would have to be non-profit organizations and be licensed by the Missouri Department of Agriculture. The house gave first round approval to the measure yesterday and will need to give it one more affirmative vote before it goes to the senate.
