LEO Managed Oil Drop Box

nc-stampSB 124 – LEO Managed Oil Drop Box

Primary Sponsors: Sen. Don Davis (D – Pitt),  Sen. Ralph Hise (D – Madison)

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.
