Other Recent Cannabis/Marijuana/Hemp developments: Totally Hemp Crazy, Inc.

Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) officials excited that North Carolina's CBD/Hemp Oil bill has passed the Senate with a unanimous vote (47-0), putting the state of North Carolina one step closer to hemp legalization. On Wednesday, July 1, 2015, the rather "cumbersome" bill was streamlined by the Senate committee stating any "board-certified neurologist could prescribe CBD oils (hemp oils) to any aged patient with intractable epilepsy, and that each patient" would simply go into a database instead of being put on a registry that would have required patients being issued a card, associating them with the registry. The registry, according to the Senate, would incur an unnecessary cost.
Insys Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: INSY) announced last month it has submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its proprietary Dronabinol Oral Solution for anorexia associated with weight loss in patients with AIDS; and nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conventional antiemetic treatments. Dronabinol Oral Solution is an orally administered liquid formulation of the pharmaceutical cannabinoid dronabinol, a synthetic version of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
