President Trump Gives Terminally Ill “Right To Try” Medical Marijuana

President Trump’s Right To Try Bill makes it okay for terminally ill patients to try experimental treatments that have not yet received final approval by the FDA — and that includes medical marijuana.

“To access cannabis, they would need to be in ‘a stage of a disease or condition in which there is reasonable likelihood that death will occur within a matter of months, or a disease or condition that would result in significant irreversible morbidity that is likely to lead to severely premature death,'” Forbes reported.

The article also clarifies eligible patients would have “exhausted approved treatment options” and they would not be eligible “to otherwise participate in ongoing clinical trials on the drug because they don’t meet inclusion criteria or live within geographic proximity of where the study is taking place.”
