SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

CBD oil and THC-A oil; certification for use; dispensing. Provides that a practitioner may issue a written certification for the use of cannabidiol oil or THC-A oil for the treatment or to alleviate the symptoms of any diagnosed condition or disease. Under current law, a practitioner may only issue such certification for the treatment or to alleviate the symptoms of intractable epilepsy. The bill increases the supply of CBD oil or THC-A oil a pharmaceutical processor may dispense from a 30-day supply to a 90-day supply. The bill reduces the minimum amount of cannabidiol or tetrahydrocannabinol acid per milliliter for a dilution of the Cannabis plant to fall under the definition of CBD oil or THC-A oil, respectively. The bill provides that any agent or employee of a pharmaceutical processor is authorized to deliver CBD oil or THC-A oil. Finally, the bill provides that no agent or employee of a pharmaceutical processor can be prosecuted for the possession or manufacture of marijuana or the possession, manufacture, or distribution of CBD oil or THC-A oil if such agent or employee is acting in accordance with certain statutes and regulations. Under current law, such agents and employees may be prosecuted, but it is considered an affirmative defense if such agents or employees act in accordance with such statutes and regulations. This bill was incorporated into SB 726.
