    Chapter 2L:

      Section: 26:2L-2: Legislative findings and declarations

           The Legislature finds and declares that recent medical research has shown that the therapeutic use of certain Schedule I controlled dangerous substances may alleviate the nausea and ill-effects of certain medical treatment, such as cancer chemotherapy, and, additionally, may alleviate the ill-effects of certain diseases, such as glaucoma. The Legislature further recognizes that there is a need for further therapeutic research with regard to the use of such controlled dangerous substances for these purposes under strictly controlled circumstances. It is for this purpose that the "Controlled Dangerous Substances Therapeutic Research Act" is hereby enacted.

L.1981, c. 72, s. 2, eff. March 23, 1981.
