Doctors to speak on behalf of legalizing medical marijuana
Doctors and medical experts will speak to senators in support of legalizing medical marijuana in a Wednesday afternoon meeting.
As a medical professional and as my daughter’s caregiver, I implore the Legislature to adopt comprehensive medical cannabis legislation this year,” she said.
Patients who could benefit from medical cannabis should be able to access it safely and legally with the guidance of their physicians,” Sisley said.
The bill would allow certain patients with debilitating conditions to access cannabis for medical use if a doctor recommends it.
“There is a large and rapidly growing body of evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of medical cannabis,” Dr. Sue Sisley, who traveled to Columbia to provide expert testimony at Wednesday’s hearing, said.
Legislature passes medical marijuana bills, but it’s not legal in Utah
Lawmakers have passed some research bills, but have failed to advance a major policy bill that would make medical marijuana legal in Utah.
SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah State Legislature has passed a medical marijuana research bill, but it doesn’t clear the way for cannabis to treat patients to be a reality in the state.
The House voted unanimously to approve House Bill 130, sponsored by Rep. Brad Daw, R-Orem, which allows for research into medical marijuana to be conducted.
Advocates for medical cannabis have said they are moving forward with plans for a ballot initiative, taking it to the voters.
The bill previously passed the Senate and now goes to Governor Gary Herbert for his signature or veto.
