Gov. Eric Holcomb signed Indiana’s first medical cannabis law Wednesday. It legalizes a form of cannabis – cannabinoid oil or CBD – for the treatment of epilepsy.
At the beginning of the session Holcomb indicated that he did not support any proposals that allowed the use of cannabis. But this week his tune changed.
“This does not put us on a slippery slope to legalizing marijuana, quite the contrary.” Holcomb says.
He says the testimony from Hoosiers in favor of CBD, a non-psychoactive form of cannabis oil, was powerful.
