More than 50 companies are vying for FDA approval for medical marijuana products, including a growing number of small-scale medical marijuana companies, and many of them are pushing to move forward with their plans to grow their businesses.
But there’s still a lot of work to be done.
The FDA has yet to make any official announcement on its proposed rules.
And many medical marijuana business owners have been stymied by the agency’s refusal to define medical marijuana.
But now that the FDA has given its final approval to the medical marijuana industry, they hope the public will accept their products and help push the process forward.
“It is a relief to see the FDA finally allow a viable medical marijuana market, because we are in a position where we can begin to offer a legitimate product that has benefits to the patients,” said Michael J. Schmid, the CEO of Medical Marijuana Supply, a California company that has been working with a growing network of medical marijuana producers.
Schmid said that he expects that the proposed rules will include a robust consumer protection and safety framework that will help ensure that medical marijuana patients can get the medication they need.
That’s important, because many medical medical marijuana users say that they’re taking their medicine with their families, but are unable to access the medications prescribed by a doctor.
The FDA said that its proposed rule will ensure that people can access marijuana products that are safe, effective and low in the side effects of opioids.
It’s also expected to establish standards for testing for marijuana products.
The agency said it will consider the impact on public health and safety and that it will take public comments on the proposed rule through the end of the year.
The American Medical Association and other medical groups have long supported medical marijuana and have been calling on the FDA to ease restrictions on the drug.
The American Medical Board, a non-profit organization representing doctors and other health care professionals, has urged the FDA not to rule out any specific form of medical cannabis as an alternative to opioids.
The new rules could allow some doctors to prescribe marijuana products to patients.
But they’ll still have to follow a strict schedule of dosages, which medical professionals say will make the drug difficult to access and to administer.
The rules are expected to take effect in late 2018.
