Medical marijuana heads back to Louisiana legislature
Published on 4/27/15
Pharmacist/State Senator Fred Mills has a lot to say regarding medical marijuana. He says marijuana was approved as medicine in Louisiana in the 1970's and in 1991 they sought after establishing a means of producing, prescribing, and dispensing it with the Department of Health and Hospitals but no such thing ever happened. This new bill will establish guidelines for marijuana from growth all the way to patient sales.
“Good cannabinoids are beneficial for different disease states,” said Mills, who was a practicing pharmacist for 15 years. Among illnesses that can benefit by medical marijuana, he said, are epilepsy, nausea, headaches and “brain situations.”
