CBD bill vote set for Feb 16 – Krug offers amendment

UPDATED: 2016-02-13: 07:57:11

On 2/12/2016, there was an “LRB correction” of the Waggaard/Krug Amendment 1. The revised language is here. The images below reflect the original language.

AB228 ended up being added to the Assembly calendar for Thursday Feb. 11, according to the session history, with an amendment from Assembly lead sponsor Scott Krug that spells out in great detail the doctor’s note that replaces a prescription. In the state senate, SB221 lead sponsor Van Wanggaard introduced an identical amendment.

Here’s a sample  of the additional language:

961.32 (2m) (a) In this subsection, “certification” means a letter or other official document issued by a physician licensed under s. 448.04 (1) (a) that contains all of the following:
1. The name, address, and telephone number of the physician.
2. The name and address of the patient who is issued the letter or document.
3. The date on which the letter or document is issued. (b) An individual may possess cannabidiol in a form without a psychoactive effect if the individual has certification stating that the individual possesses cannabidiol to treat a seizure disorder, if the certification has an issue date that is no more than 2 years prior to the possession, and if any expiration date provided by the physician in the certification has not passed.

Below is the full text of Scott Krug’s amendment, which would add quite a bit of new language to what is currently a very short bill. (PDF):
