NC FAMILIES FOR
MEDICAL CANNABIS

EVERYONE HAS A STORY.

MISSION STATEMENT.

We are a coalition of families, veterans, physicians, and other medical professionals who believe safe, regulated access to medical cannabis is critical for the wellbeing and quality of life of NC patients suffering from debilitating medical conditions. 

The NC Compassionate Care Act presents the first true opportunity to deliver on this mission. And that is exactly what we aim to do.

Under the NC Compassionate Care Act (SB 711) doctors can recommend medical cannabis for the following conditions:

  • Cancer
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Crohn’s disease
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Cachexia or wasting syndrome
  • Severe or persistent nausea who is not pregnant that is related to end-of-life or hospice care, or who is bedridden or homebound because of a condition.
  • Any other serious medical condition or its treatment added by the Medical Cannabis Advisory Board.

THE DATA.

A 2016 study found a 48% reduction in patients’ opioid use after three months of medical cannabis treatment.

In a 2018 study, one month after starting to use medical cannabis, two-thirds of cancer patients said their symptoms were significantly improved.

In a 2021 Elon University poll, 73% of North Carolinians supported the legalization of medical cannabis.

Nearly half of Parkinson’s disease patients who have tried cannabis say the drug helped relieve their symptoms, according to a patients’ survey.
