A legislative committee voted vigorously in opposition to medical cannabis legalization in North Carolina six years ago, but things have changed a lot since then. In a groundbreaking moment on Tuesday, August 24, North Carolina Senate committee voted in approval of a revised bill to legalize medical cannabis statewide. Prior to the bill’s approval, a different version made its way through the Judiciary and another committee in July. However, the measure was rereferred in early August. The latest rule adoption demonstrates growing acceptance for the plant in its medicinal form. The latest news emerges one week after the legislation was considered during a hearing. However, members of the panel failed to approve changes during that meeting. A voice vote from Senators led to the most recent advancement for medical cannabis in North Carolina. What Happens Next for SB711? Moving forwards, the bill must gain approval from the Senate Health Care and Rules and Operations Committees, before it makes its way to the floor and potentially progresses to the House of Representatives. The final stage would see the governor put his signature on North Carolina’s medical cannabis bill.
