This bill is an extension of SL 2015-154 / HB766 revising the CBD Oil regulations in 2015. The original bill allowed for neurologists to order the use of CBD extracts for limited uses. Caregivers may use the order to show cause for being in possession of the substances. As a result of the utilization of this allowed behavior, residual oil regulation is now being discussed.
This bill would require residual oil from hemp extract to be disposed at established secure collection boxes managed by law enforcement. Additionally, neurologists who approve dispensing hemp extract to a registered caregiver would be required to inform the caregiver of the requirement to dispose of the extract in a secure collection box.
This bill has passed in the Senate Agriculture, Environment, and Natural Resources Committee on 3.2.17.
This bill was amended by Sen. Ralph Hise (R – Madison) to state that “No criminal penalty shall attach for any violation of this subsection” in the Committee on Rules and Operations of the Senate on 3.9.17.
The Committee Substitute was adopted on 3.9.17.
This bill has been placed on the Senate Calendar for 3.14.17.
