    As a physician with over 1600 patients in the registry I highly encourage either no limits or allowing up to 500 mg per day per dose per route of administration. What we need to consider is NO ONE HAS EVER DIED from cannabis. Why? because there are no CBD receptors in the breathing center of the brain UNLIKE opioids and benzodiazepines that kill over 115 people EVERY day in the US. Stop vilifying cannabis, when you are upset about the opioid crisis! If anything I get my patients off of opioids and benzodiazepines by using cannabis.
    In addition every persons genetic make up of the cytochrome P450 of the liver is unique which might necessitate larger volumes of cannabis to obtain results. There should never be, in my medical opinion, any reason whatsoever to limit the amount of cannabis.
    If members of the committee have no idea how to use cannabis for patients or are not qualified physicians, then they should have no say in the matter.
    I have learned a tremendous amount about cannabis by treating 1600 patients, and the big lesson is that this is not a pharmaceutical medication and each human responds differently. I have several patients that must use large amounts to obtain results, so be it, the result is what matters, not the amount. When cannabis changes and improves the persons quality of life, what gives us the right to limit the amount? The answer should be we don’t have the right to limit.
