ABOUT THE NORTH CAROLINA MEDICAL CANNABIS ACT
There are currently three medical marijuana bills in the North Carolina Legislature — companion bills HB 185/SB 648 and SB 579. These bills, known as The North Carolina Medical Cannabis Act, could provide North Carolinians, with a variety of serious medical conditions, the treatment option of medical cannabis. The bills would also create a system of cultivation, production, and distribution of medical marijuana and medical cannabis products, ensuring that patients, whose doctors recommend they use marijuana have safe and reliable access to it, while creating jobs and boosting the state economy.
