On Wednesday, March 25, 2015 the Charlotte's Web Medical Access Act of 2015 (H.R. 1635) was introduced by Congressman Scott Perry (R-PA) with 18 original cosponsors from both sides of the aisle. This legislation amends the Controlled Substances Act by excluding cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabidiol-rich plants from the definition of marijuana, therefore exempting CBD from the legal restrictions currently applied to it as a Schedule 1 substance. What seems like a minor change would actually be a monumental step in allowing families across the country access to life-changing hemp oil therapies.
With strong bipartisan support, H.R. 1635 is gaining momentum in the U.S. House of Representatives, but we need your help to get this important legislation passed.
