Governor signs bill for medical marijuana expansion

A bill signed into law Thursday would allow people with certain diseases to see a doctor’s recommendation for a cannabis oil treatment, The Advocate reports. Medical marijuana is legal in Louisiana, but it’s difficult for people to obtain the drug because there are currently no guidelines for its distribution.

“This is one of those bills that I believe will have a positive impact on people who need it the most,” Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said, according to The Advocate.
