Here's an article re a sane national policy about marijuana (What??? YES !!!). The UK has reclassified CBD oil as a medicine.
Here's a link to the MHRA website in the UK, detailing their reasons for reclassifying CBD as a medicine. Basically, they looked at the evidence and concluded that CBD is an effective medicine for patients with many health problems. They are now establishing a framework to make sure that CBD products are safe, like they do for any other medicine.
Maybe our federal government should do the same?
