S.1008 - Therapeutic Hemp Medical Access Act of 2017 (2017-18)
*S.1333: Therapeutic Hemp Medical Access Act of 2015 (2015-16)
"I think cannabis oil derived from marijuana can be helpful and under regulation for medical purposes should be allowed. I'm not for just totally decriminalizing marijuana, however, because although everyone who takes it doesn't become a drug addict, I've heard many people say anybody who was ever a drug addict started with marijuana. We don't want to start that foundation or make it too easy to get."
"This legislation will ensure that families of children suffering from seizures have access to treatments that can provide them with a better quality of life. The legislation also removes federal barriers for Georgia families who want to bring the cannabis oil back to Georgia in order to administer medical treatment in the comfort of their own home. I've always been a supporter of research and innovation as a leading driver in finding new and improved treatment options for those affected by diseases and disorders."
