COLUMBIA - A medical marijuana study committee will meet at the Statehouse this morning to discuss ways to get patients access to CBD oil.
The Post and Courier's Jeremy Borden reported SLED, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Health and Environmental Control and the Medical University of South Carolina, among others, all have representatives on the panel in order to get broad sign-off for how marijuana-related products can be grown and distributed.
Borden reports CBD oil treatment has gained national prominence because of ongoing experiments in Colorado, where medical and recreational use of the drug is legal.
