NC medical marijuana bill goes to House with final Senate OK
Legislation making it lawful to smoke marijuana or consume cannabis-infused products for medical purposes in North Carolina has cleared the state Senate and now goes to the House. The measure received bipartisan support on Monday night by a margin similar to an initial vote last week. The legislation creates a system whereby someone with one of more than a dozen “debilitating medical conditions” can be prescribed cannabis. Sales centers run by licensed suppliers would open. Chances for House passage before this year’s primary work session adjourns in a few weeks don’t appear good, as Speaker Tim Moore has said the issue may have to wait until next year.
