Tenessee Governor Signs Cannabis Oil Bill

It’s now legal to use cannabis oil for limited medical purposes in Tennessee.

As expected, Gov. Bill Haslam signed a law that legalized the controversial medical measure Monday. The bill allows patients who suffer from seizures or epilepsy and received a recommendation from a doctor to use cannabis oil.

“I’m going to trust people like John Dreyzehner, our commissioner (of the Tennessee Department of Health), in terms of the fears that he has around medical marijuana and some of the issues there versus cannabis oil, which he feels like can help some people in very specific situations,” Haslam told reporters in Franklin, after confirming he signed the bill Monday morning.
