Whereas the article should have read 'south- bound checkpoints are being maintained to pre- vent criminals and human traffickers from taking cash and guns back to Mexico.' Dr. Spitzer never retbrs to stopping illegal immigrants from taking 'items' back to Mexico. Also, the phrase 'decriminalization of mari- juana' is inaccurate. Representative Spitzer re- ferred to "marijuana" as a controversial subject. He went on to describe that morphine is made from poppy plants and can be prescribed and used as a medicine yet when the same plant is refined into heroin it is a highly abused drug. He further explained that marijuana has two compounds that can be used as medicines. One is THC which is produced in pharmacologic grade and can be pre- scribed for nausea. It is the component that pro- duces the-"high" when smoked, CBD oil is the other medicine that can be derived from marijuana a,d has no abuse potential or street value. It can (with the new law) be used to treat children with intractable seizures under the supervision of an epilepsy specialist or two other physicians only after standard drugs fail. The CBD oil can only be produced in specific places under authority of l xas DPS. The law creates de novo the process for the CBD oil to be produced, prescribed, and monitored: There is no law regarding marijuana that was changed in any way thus no decriminalization. It is still a crime to possess, sell, or consume marijuana in Texas outside of the strict rules passed in the new law. AS a physician, Dr. Spitzer understands that plants can be used for medicine and is not scared to take bold steps to provide relief to Texas children (and their families) sufl ring from intractable seizures. i I I I e On Thursday, Aug. 13 an open house will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the Cain Center in Athens.
