The Conservative State of Georgia Steps Forward for Clinical Trials of Medical Marijuana
In the upcoming election heat, Georgia, which is a conservative part of the continent, is realizing minor sways of medical cannabis campaigns where the local governor is up to make clinical trials as proponents ensure the authority that the magical weed can heal many disorders including seizures in children.
Since 1996, about 26 states have got the licenses in the country; the number is still growing and 2 states have completely decriminalized cannabis and the citizens here are free to take it as a recreational stuff, which are none other than Colorado and Washington.
This year, some of the southern states have legalized medical marijuana, but in a very controlled manner. They have made laws that will restrict to use minimal THC. But, its general outlook as psychoactive compound had made the deal difficult for Georgia last year; as a result, the consequences have compelled Georgia authorities to go for a clinical trial of the wonder weed.
Another conservative state, Utah of the country has registered itself as provider of medical cannabis for only the cases that are found severely affected by epilepsy. The major component of cannabis called as cannabidiol is the essential element that will play a major part in the drug, which will help heal such fatal disorders. Cannabidiol can be procured from other states when necessary under the consent of neurologists.
Washington became another state, where people could buy cannabis without any legal restriction and even without a doctor’s prescription.
In south, the wonder weed has been supported by numerous parents who say that seizures that affected their kids could be treated with the medicine, but still scientific research is in its initial stage.
The complete deal and agreements are yet to come out successfully as legal authorities wait for the results of clinical trials. As per a report, Georgia Regents University in Augusta will be administering the clinical trials under the supervision of GW Pharmaceuticals. The company has also partnered for research and development with a party in New York, which conducts trials in various states.
The deal revealed that Georgia would come up with trial results by the end of the year and by the commencement of next year it will be cannabis decriminalized state. The state approval will be passed after green signal by FDA.
Valerie Weaver, the parent of a seizure-affected 6-yr old kid brought her child to the governor’s event at Children’s Hospital of Georgia on the campus of Georgia Regents University where she shared her feedback about being highly optimistic about the trial that may save her kid who is affected by 60 to 80 seizures a day.
