Importing marijuana oil for medical use in TN breaks federal law

People with a host of terminal, intractable or untreatable conditions often turn to marijuana for help. Extracts and concentrates often suppress symptoms or even reverse them in some cases. Some research has shown that highly concentrated marijuana oil can kill cancer cells, while anecdotal evidence shows that similar products can suppress seizures and tremors in those not helped by traditional pharmaceutical options.

What are the federal penalties for marijuana charges?

Even though many states are making allowances for marijuana on a state level, this is still a drug that is illegal on a federal level. This means that it is possible to face federal charges if you are caught with marijuana. If you are facing that situation, you are looking at time away from your family members. You might end up in prison or with considerable fines. This can affect your life, but it will also affect your family members. Think about these points if you are staring down federal drug charges.

However, medical marijuana is still - for all intents and purposes - illegal in the state of Tennessee, which means that patients in our state who could benefit from the drug cannot legally gain access to it. This has driven some patients to break the law in their desperate quest for relief.
