Epidiolex Becomes First FDA Approved Marijuana-Based Drug Available In The U.S.
In June, the FDA approved Epidiolex as the medication available in the United States which is made from cannabis. Learn why that's important.
On October 3rd, 2018, the Senate passed an opioid package that combined more than 70 bills that have all faced contention in the past. In what is considered a historic, near-unanimous vote, the package passed through on its way to the President. Only one senator, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, voted against.
There are many parts of the bill that are meant to help our nation out of its current opioid epidemic, everything from preventing more lethal drugs coming into this country to helping people who are already suffering from addiction get treatment. The bill covers, but is not limited to:
Rehabs are still open!
There may be a lot of confusion on how this new package of laws and regulations will change the current state of our country. The important thing to take away from this is that these programs are meant to not only help those who are currently suffering and recovering from addiction, but preventing more people from becoming addicted. Like any bill, people may not feel the effects immediately, but they are coming. Something is being done about our current crisis.
