Oregon Bill introduced to help medical marijuana users get organ transplants

In Oregon, a bill has been proposed that would bar organ transplant center from restricting transplants to patients based on their use of medical marijuana. House Bill 2687 would help clear the path to a transplant for patients currently using cannabis to deal with chronic pain and other conditions—but critics say it would create unsafe conditions for health care, particularly given the scarcity of organs currently available for transplant.

The bill is sponsored by Portland representative Rob Nosse. He says it was inspired by the Oregon House Committee on Health Care testimony of a woman who is banned from being her husband’s organ donor because he uses cannabis.

Is the World Health Organization punting on Global CBD reform?

Although the World Health Organization (WHO) was supposed to make a decision on rescheduling cannabis in the coming months, a report from Cannabis Wire indicates that might not happen at all this year. It is a situation that could not only jam up the course of international cannabis reform, but it is one that stands to sabotage the emergence of a global CBD market, the report reads.

Last month, the agency’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence was set to release a review of cannabis and its derivatives. There was hope that the assessment would lead all good things, especially for cannabidiol or CBD.

While it’s a big milestone for a TSX-listed cannabis stock, investors need to temper their expectations.
