I think that the states that are seeking to enact laws that make cannabis legal for medical reason will be making major positive strides in doing what the people want. The prohibition years of Marijuana are over and the fed and sates are now having to bend to the will power of the people. Those who voted them in. And they are beginning to realize that going against the federal government is the new and best things to do for the peoples of their states. I use it with my cancer patients no matter who they are and it helps them in more ways than one.

A  proposal to allow a form of medical marijuana are gaining momentum in a handful of Southern states.

Twenty states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana, and this year powerful GOP lawmakers in Georgia and Alabama are putting their weight behind bills that would allow for the limited use of cannabis oil by those with specific medical conditions. Other Southern states are also weighing the issue with varying levels of support. The key to swaying the hearts of conservative lawmakers has been the stories of children suffering up to 100 seizures a day whose parents say they could benefit from access to cannabidiol, which would be administered orally in a liquid form. And proponents argue the cannabis oil is low in tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana that makes users feel high.

 “Once people realize it’s not a 6-year-old smoking a joint, most folks realize this is the compassionate thing to do. This bill has already earned the backing of more than 80 state lawmakers, including several members of the House Republican leadership, who signed on as co-sponsors and the state’s largest professional association of doctors. The bill would revive a long-dormant research program allowing academic institutions to distribute the medical cannabis and would be “limited in scope, tightly restricted, well regulated and managed by doctors

In Louisiana, although a bill has yet to be introduced, a recent committee hearing at the Capitol on legalizing medical marijuana drew a standing-room-only crowd, and Gov. Bobby Jindal made comments last month indicating he was willing to consider it.

“When it comes to medical marijuana … if there is a legitimate medical need, I’d certainly be open to making it available under very strict supervision for patients that would benefit from that.
