Voted Aye on SB124-LEO Managed CBD Oil Drop Box which proposed that any individual who possesses or uses hemp extract, as defined under this section, shall dispose of all residual oil from the extract at a secure collection box managed by a law enforcement agency, and that any neurologist who approves of dispensing hemp extract to a registered caregiver, shall inform the registered caregiver that disposal must be done at a secure collection box. 2018

Voted Aye on SB168-Expand Allowed Medical Uses/Cannabis Extract which adds to the proposed changes to GS 90-94.1 to also allow the possession or use of cannabis extract to treat a medical condition diagnosed by a neurologist for which currently available treatment options have been ineffective (was only expanded to treat autism, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, or Mitochondrial disease, in addition to the already allowable treatment of intractable epilepsy). Makes conforming modifications to the proposed changes to Article 5G, GS Chapter 90, Alternative Treatment Act, to include patients who have been diagnosed with a medical condition for which currently available treatment options have been ineffective.
