SHOULD MEDICAL MARIJUANA BE LEGALIZED IN NORTH CAROLINA?
Bill sponsor Rep. Carla Cunningham (D-Charlotte), a registered nurse, said she supports the use of medical cannabis for pain relief caused by debilitating diseases like multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis and post-traumatic stress disorder. “I can see that there’s a whole group of people in chronic pain in other states that are benefiting by the use of medical marijuana, but here they cannot do it, and it’s not a good practice,” Cunningham said. Cunningham said that there are no documented negative side effects of medical cannabis, and that it’s therefore unfair to prevent its use.
