Testimony is over. Young closes and says he is willing to listen to anyone about what the definition of "zero percent THC" should be.

Doctors, a shop owner, parents of epileptic children, the parent of a quadriplegic child, American Legion and a farmer have spoken in favor of completely legalizing CBD oil with .03 percent THC. So far no one has supported restricting legality to products with just 0 percent THC.

Two other doctors spoke in favor of legalizing CBD oil. A couple were concerned about what would be considered "zero" THC under the bill that legalizes CBD products with no THC.

The bill would block local governments from banning short-term rentals.

We're moving on to testimony now. First up Dr. Richard Feldman, representing the Indiana Academy of Family Physicians, is speaking in support of CBD oil legality. Feldman was a former state health commissioner.

The bill requires manufacturers to get the CBD oil products tested at a laboratory, to ensure they have no THC. The State Department of Health would have the ability to decide which labs are allowed.

Moving onto the next CBD bill: Senate Bill 52, which would legalize CBD oil without THC. Holcomb supported the legality of this substance.

Young says he is probably going to hold the CBD oil bills to vote on at a later date.

Sen. Young says he wants to keep the CBD registry bill narrow to get something passed. If people want to expand the legality, he says that should be in another bill. "We’re not making a statement about whether it should be open to everybody or not."

Sen. Lanane: "Why don't we do the right thing and legalize this substance?" His comment is met with applause from CBD supporters in the room.

The state passed a law last legislative session creating a registry for epileptic patients to legally possess CBD oil. However, lawmakers didn't provide a way for people to purchase the product, and confusion followed. Here's that story:

Senate Bill 294 allows retailers to sell CBD (with trace amounts of THC) to those on the CBD oil registry. Those who aren't on the registry wouldn't be able to buy the product.

Here's the two bills that will be discussed in committee today: I believe there are six CBD-related bills total this session.
