First batch of Louisiana’s medical marijuana cleared for release Tuesday to pharmacies by regulators

State agriculture regulators have cleared Louisiana’s first batch of medical marijuana for release to pharmacies, ending months of delays getting the product cleared for patients. 

John Davis, the head GB Sciences Louisiana, said medical marijuana will be released to pharmacies on Tuesday and that’s when the first patients can get access to the drug.

The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry said Thursday evening it completed testing of a random sample of the marijuana tincture, which was produced by LSU and its contractor, GB Sciences.
