Legislation History

Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed in 2014 HB 1231, or “Harper Grace’s Law,” named after Harper Grace Durval, a young girl with a severe form of epilepsy. The law provides an affirmative defense to patients who suffer from a debilitating epileptic condition for the possession and use of CBD oil, resin, or oil that contains at least 15% CBD, or if in liquid form at least 50 mg of CBD per milliliter and no more than 0.5% THC.  

 

Recreational marijuana legalization efforts have been largely dead on arrival in a state that still has numerous “dry” cities and counties, or areas that prohibit alcohol sales and consumption. The Medical Marijuana 2020 effort would make medical marijuana available to Mississippians who have debilitating medical conditions. The campaign is in the early signature-gathering phase to qualify a constitutional amendment for the 2020 Mississippi general election ballot.

Overview

CBD oil may only be procured by order of a doctor licensed to practice in Mississippi, and directly administered under the supervision of the physician.
