NC Senate committee clears medical hemp oil bill

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A bill that legalizes medicinal oil for epileptic patients made from a marijuana plant has received unanimous approval from a North Carolina Senate committee.

The Senate Rules Committee approved the bill Wednesday, after brief discussion and testimony from parents of children with epilepsy. The bill would legalize and regulate hemp oil extract, made from a marijuana plant, to be used in treating severe epilepsy that has not been responsive to three or more treatments.

Lawmakers say the hemp oil, which is made into syrup and taken by a patient, would not make anyone high.

The state House passed the bill last week.

Henderson County Republican Sen. Tom Apodaca championed the bill, saying he would do all he could to help families who have watched their children suffer for years.

NC Senate puts insurance requirement in moped bill

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina senators are considering a bill to require moped drivers to have insurance for the vehicles.

A Senate committee approved the bill Wednesday.

The House approved a bill last week without an insurance requirement. The House version requires that mopeds be registered and titled with the Division of Motor Vehicles. The bill also directs the state to study whether mopeds should be regulated further.

Onslow Rep. Phillip Shepard wrote the bill and says the House version is a start and he hopes the study will show whether more regulations should be put in place.
