INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — A state senator has filed a bill that would, for the first time, clearly legalize the sale and possession of CBD oil in Indiana.

Sen. Jim Tomes (R – Wadesville) filed S.B. 214 Wednesday morning in the hopes of making the product readily available throughout the state.

“When we’re done, CBD will be as easy to obtain as baby aspirins,” he told WTHR, just minutes before filing the bill at the Indiana Statehouse.
