The North Carolina House Health Committee is set to discuss the possibility of legalizing the sale of medical marijuana, Tuesday, according to the Fayetteville Observer. The debate comes after growing public support for the use of cannabis as a medical treatment.

Legislation, If approved, would permit the regulated sale of cannabis products to qualified patients. The committee will analyze the potential economic impact of such a move, as well as the potential medical benefits for individuals suffering from chronic pain, epilepsy, and other qualifying conditions.

A state Medical Cannabis Commission could license up to 10 suppliers that would grow marijuana, make it into medical marijuana products and sell the products to the public. The state would monitor this with a “seed to sale” tracking system.

Each of the 10 suppliers could have up to eight medical cannabis centers.

North Carolina’s governor has stated that he would likely favor medical cannabis legislation.

“I think medical marijuana has passed the Senate this past year, and I think that has an opportunity to pass,” Gov. Roy Cooper said last December.
