NC medical marijuana, North Carolina Cannabis Laws, House Health Committee, NC Compassionate Care Act

RALEIGH, N.C. (420CanNews) — Things are slowly getting clear as North Carolina might just be opening up a whole new chapter in the “Green Chronicles.” Some high-minded state lawmakers are giving the nod to bringing NC medical marijuana into the spotlight. 

The House Health Committee recently discussed the N.C. Compassionate Care Act, generating thoughtful deliberation and meaningful exchanges among committee members. The bill is like a magical ticket that could be a getaway to the world of green green grass medical Mary Jane. Senator Bill Rabon of Brunswick County stepped up with some wisdom. He said lawmakers are giving the rules a little makeover so that patients and their doctors can light up without Uncle Sam giving them a side-eye. N.C. medical marijuana will cover illnesses such as ALS, cancer, epilepsy, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, PTSD, or terminal illness.

However, it’s not the best way to smoke marijuana in an all-you-can-smoke buffet since they are handing out just 10 golden licenses to the state’s suppliers. Additionally, the law prohibits suppliers from displaying flashy advertisements. 

Secret Stoner Superhero

But hold the space bong, as a stoner hero has to stir the pot rules in this corner of the cannabis industry. Here comes Senator Rabon, the unsung stoner hero. The statesman is a survivor of the colon cancer battle, toking his way through chemo like a true ganja guru over 20 ago. He added that he was getting his herb delivered straight to his mailbox. Now that’s some next-level, mail-order service. 

Access to tokes at home saved his life, he testified. He believes that passing the N.C. medical marijuana bill would benefit thousands in the state.

The Future Just Got a Little Greener in the Tar Heel State

Imagine a world where those with serious illnesses can legally toke up to ease their pain – it’s like a dream come true. No more sneaking around or worrying about the law when they need herbal comfort. Solid regulations make it a win-win for the medical cannabis community
