Wisconsin lawmakers that make up the state's Senate Committee on Judiciary and Public Safety voted 4-0 today in favor of approving a bill that could make access to cannabidiol, aka "CBD", extracts easier for those with qualifying conditions. This bill would not just be a victory to those with qualifying conditions, but also those with children affected by serious conditions like epilepsy and more.
Under this amended bill, those who qualify would need a current physician's certification issued within the prior 12 months proving that the cannabis oil would be used in a treatment regimen for "a medical condition, not just a seizure disorder."
By "certification," they mean "a letter or other official document issued by a phisician...that contains all of the following":
The name, address, and telephone number of the physician.
The name and address of the patient who is issued the letter or document.
The date on which the letter or document is issued.
Now the bill is sent onto the full state senate and state assembly before hopefully being passed through to Republican Governor Scott Walker's desk.
