Action Alert: Proposal to Limit the Sale of Hemp Extract Products to 21 and Up

Studies compare the efficacy of Cannabinoids to ibuprofen. Ibuprofen does not have an age limit to purchase nor do topical applications (lotions, balms, and salves).

Americans had been blocked from growing and purchasing cannabis-hemp plants and products since 1937 (Marihuana Tax Act).

The Medical Cannabis Advisory Committee recommended 21 and up purchases for hemp extract products. The medical cannabis advisory committee consists of medical marijuana treatment centers, medical marijuana physicians, advocates, and stakeholders.

When asked, “if they had thought about the opioid epidemic in Florida and what harm 21 and up age restrictions will cause on our young adult population.” Medical marijuana physicians said, no, we had not thought about that.” Florida has the second highest opioid overdose death rate in the nation. Florida surveys report the most misused substances on college campuses are alcohol, Ativan, and Adderall.

Readily accessible hemp extract products by all include CBD, CBG, CBN, etc. sublinguals, gel caps, edibles, topical applications (balms, salves, and lotions).
