Does your state have legal cannabis?

No.  As of this writing, October 25, 2022, North Carolina continues to be one of only 13 states that have not enacted a medical cannabis program in the country. In a January 2021 poll, Elon University found 73% of North Carolinians supported medical cannabis. In a May 2022 poll, support had increased to 82% with strong bipartisan support. For the first time ever, the North Carolina Senate passed a medical cannabis bill.

On June 6, 2022, the North Carolina Senate passed SB 711 the North Carolina Compassionate Care Act, sponsored by Sen. Bill Rabon (R), by a vote of 36-7. The bill, which was introduced in 2021, passed through four Senate committees before it was taken up by the full Senate.

However, the House of Representatives adjourned without taking up the legislation.

There are initiatives underway, although the two medical cannabis initiatives did not receive enough votes to be on the November 2022 ballots. At Medical Marijuana 411 we believe in the right to education. So we suggest starting your cannabis education certification with our Advanced CBD Certification or even check out our courses on FDA Approved Cannabinoid Medications.

It is important to remember that MM411, Inc is not advocating to break the law but believes that laws will change in North Carolina and want to give those interested in the science behind the plant, the opportunity to learn more.

North Carolina–Marijuana Legal Overview

North Carolina is considered a “low THC” state, which means that despite federal allowance for hemp products with up to .3% THC, the state law is even more restrictive with respect to THC content. North Carolina law dictates that cannabis extracts containing less than nine-tenths of one percent THC and at least five percent CBD by weight are the only legal cannabis products in North Carolina
