An Indiana State Senate committee voted 7-2 to make it easier for Hoosiers to get access to CBD Oil.
Under current law, CBD Oil can only be used for children with a certain type of epilepsy who are on a registry. And late last year the Indiana Attorney General’s office issued an opinion that CDB Oil was still illegal under state statute.
That caused an uproar and several lawmakers introduced measures to correct that.
Under SB 52 passed by Senate Criminal and Corrections Committee, anyone can purchase CDB oil for any reason, there are protections for employees who might test positive for THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) as a result of using CBD oil, and any CBD Oil sold in Indiana must be certified and lab tested to contain less than 0.03 percent THC.
The measure now goes to the full Senate.
