Republican Senate Candidate Dom Gentile Announces Support for #MedicalCannabis Legislation

Republican Senate Candidate Dom Gentile Announces Support for #MedicalCannabis Legislation


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - May 31, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Alabama candidate for U.S. Senate, Dom Gentile, today announced his support for medical cannabis, and is adding this issue to his campaign platform at gentileforsenate.com.
"I have recently met with dozens of people who are stricken with medical conditions such as epilepsy, seizures, severe autism, Alzheimer's and MS. Many of them have symptoms that can be relieved by cannabis that is specifically formulated for medical use. As I listened to the passionate pleas of these patients and their families, and understood how this can help them, I became a believer that something needed to be done at the federal level," said Gentile. "Medical cannabis is listed as a Schedule 1 controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. It is in the same class as heroin and LSD, and that is absurd. I am calling for the FDA and the DEA to immediately re-classify cannabis for medical use and allow the states to decide how to dispense the drug."
