OKAY, I am coming to you with my hat in my hand.
Wherever you live and follow this page in the world please INFORM me.
Please explain. Explain to me why Tennessee should NOT pass a medical marijuana bill?
Really. I am open minded. I am looking for reasonable explanations why NOT to do it. I am not advocating one way or another. I just call it as I see it.
Because I frankly cannot find any rational reason why not to legalize medical — NOT RECREATIONAL — marijuana.
Now, let me say, I do not have a dog in this fight. I just want what’s best and as best as I can tell I have not heard any strong, compelling arguments against medical marijuana.
SO, IF YOU ARE AGAINST IT PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHY?
CBD Oil is already legal in Tennessee. I posted here a photo of a bottle I got legally here in Tennessee. Yup, I use it. Helps me with aching muscles.
COME ARREST ME! Not.
Some businesses have been busted in Rutherford County for selling gummy candies with CBD.
You probably saw the news story on Operation Candy Crush. That was a bit of a head scratcher.
The CBD oil I have is legal made from hemp, not marijuana. Both are cannabinoids.
There is very little THC in my oil. THC is the element that makes you high in marijuana. My CBD oil does NOT make me high.
And yet some people are being busted for selling CBD products. I’m not sure of all the legalities.
But this just seems to confuse the issue.
I’ve seen children with seizures, people in great pain and cancer patients with horrible nausea from chemo benefit from medical marijuana.
I wonder: Who are we to deprive them?
I also recognize that opioids are currently legal with a prescription.
We all know about the horrible opioid epidemic.
Experts tell me anyone who thinks marijuana is more potentially harmful or addictive than opioids is just simply wrong.
SO, HERE ARE THE BASICS OF A MEDICAL MARIJUANA BILL INTRODUCED BY TWO REPUBLICAN TENNESSEE LAWMAKERS:
The Tennessean reports the legislation, introduced by Rep. Jeremy Faison, R-Cosby, and Sen. Steve Dickerson, R-Nashville, would only allow oil-based manufactured products, such as pills or lotions, and would not permit the sale of raw cannabis, also known as marijuana, as is common in other states.
The new Faison-Dickerson legislation would not permit any recreational use of marijuana.
Under the Faison and Dickerson legislation, the Tennessean reports patients wanting to receive any cannabis oil-based products would have to have one of the following medical conditions:
HIV and AIDS
amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS
post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD
inflammatory bowel disease
ulcerative colitismultiple sclerosis
or a number of chronic or debilitating diseases.
SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Share this post. I am looking for a range of opinions.
