Medical marijuana bill changes not yet ready
A decision on a medical marijuana bill that we blogged about in a previous post was supposed to be made today, but the health committee chair deferred the measure until next Wednesday. Work is still in progress to create an effective vehicle that would help patients get better access to the medicine. Neither HB2675 nor HB2434 will be passed as is; however, the Committee on Health will make a decision next week about the future of a revised measure whose "primary concern is access for people who are sick."
