Mississippi’s House of Representatives voted 112 to 6 Thursday to approve House Bill 1231, a measure to legalize medical cannabis oil that’s low in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and high in CBD (cannabidiol). The bill’s already passed the state’s Senate, and now heads to the governor.

If House Bill 1231 becomes law, the possession of low-THC cannabis oil will be legal for those who receive a recommendation from a physician; the University of Mississippi Medical Center would be authorized to dispense the medicine.

The bill is named after Harper Grace Durval, a 22-month-old girl who has a severe form of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome.

A spokeswoman for Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant stated that; “The governor will review it closely when it reaches his desk.”

      I grew up in MS, but will probably never set foot in the place again. One reason (among many) for that is the passage of this idiotic legislation that is clearly just a stalling tactic to delay doing anything of substance. Get on the right side of history for once, MS.

        Ron you are so right! I am ashamed of the people who Mississippians elect! and i will guarantee you that anything that is not allowed here in Mississippi is all because of hate, discrimination, and prejudice!!!! thats what most everything here is driven from…….Look at this whole hateful SB2681 and the criminalizing of a natural growing plant that for many many many years proved to the world that it’s a harmless plant,Marijuana, and illegal?, for what, ? for this government to continue to make money off innocent people using a natural plant for therapy and plenty other purposes , all get put under the jail,,,the elected officials in this beautiful country are sending and have been sending this country down the drain!, Take care and just remember everyone, do what ever you want to do in this whole world, because it’ll all be over before you know it! I’m not religious like some of the religious people who push others down, not to say that there isn’t some nice and respectful religious people, cause there are a few, but for the most part they are mostly hateful and judgmental,. in my opinion at least, I do believe that live and let live, and be nice to all around you and even try to be nice to people who are nasty towards us,, until they start to push you down and walk on you , then avoid them and keep that type out of you life,, one should be free and at peace, take care everyone and have a nice life…….

      You got that right!!!!! Where is the freedom???

      Exactly my feelings on this matter, This is a way to short circuit marijuana reform in the south and all other pretend to care states. You cannot help just one segment of society thats discrimination.

    Wow! I count three liberal minded Mississippians (including one lapsed; i.e., yours truly) plus the M.A.C. organization. I didn’t think there were that many of us on the planet.

    I found the M.A.C. piece thoughtful and right on the money. Keep up the good work. Btw, is Paula Johnston by any chance the offspring of Paul Johnston, the MS governor who signed the bill ending liquor prohibition in (I believe) 1966? That would be quite an irony.

    people in Mississippi need to stand together. get rid of gerrymander in our state, and vote theses assholes out! i can’t vote. i’m a non-violent felon. that’s how they get us keep us down. there is alot of people here that think the same. we just need to start something up. Free the south!!!

    What are the affects? Are the same as the weed ?

    This may at least open the door for the full plant extraction! it is at least a start that the state is admitting some medical values of this plant. I think we can push for the rest of the plant now!
