north carolina marijuana laws
Currently North Carolina allows Medical CBD only. The state does not have a regulated program for the cultivation, production, or dispensing of CBD products. The law passed in 2014, called the North Carolina Epilepsy Alternative Treatment Act. It initially forced patients to participate in a pilot program. The law was amended in 2015 eliminating the patient’s participation in the pilot program. However, patients must be under the care of a neurologist and diagnosed with intractable epilepsy. The neurologist must be affiliated with an in-state licensed hospital in order to obtain the CBD.
Hemp production has been legalized in North Carolina, but only as part of the state's pilot program as allowed under federal law. The N.C. General Assembly passed Senate Bill 313 in 2015, allowing the Industrial Hemp Commission to develop the rules and licensing structure necessary to stay within federal laws.
