New Medical Marijuana Bill Being Voted On In Louisiana House Today

Bill 143 was approved earlier this month by the Senate and will be voted on by the Louisiana house today.

Under Senate Bill 143, Louisiana would be allowed to have rules and regulations for dispensing up to 10 medical marijuana distribution sites within the state. These sites would be overseen by the Louisiana Board of Pharmacy and supplied by the cultivation center overseen by the Department of Agriculture and Forestry.

This would allow physicians to recommend medical marijuana for any “medically recognized disease or condition”. This bill is currently limited to conditions of glaucoma, symptoms resulting from chemotherapy or spastic quadriplegia.

This bill is an expansion of a 1991 law that authorized the limited medical use of marijuana but did not provide access for patients. This law was nevery fully implemented as it required the use of medical marijuana to be in accordance with the FDA and DEA guidelines.

Senate Bill 143 would change the 1991 law, striking the provisions that require FDA and DEA approval for the program. If approved, the law would take effect upon being signed by the Governor.

If you live in Louisiana, please take a moment to contact your Louisiana legislators about this important Bill. Let them know that you support it. It is encouraged that you submit a personalized letter if you or a loved one could benefit from the legal access of medical marijuana.
