Idaho’s Senate State Affairs Committee has approved an amended version of Senate Bill 1146, a proposal to allow for the possession and use of low-THC cannabis extracts for medical purposes.

The proposal, which is sponsored by Senator Curt McKenzie, Chairman of the Senate State Affairs Committee, was approved narrowly with a 5 to 4 vote.

Senate Bill 1146 would allow those with ailments such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy who receive a recommendation from a physician to use cannabis extracts that have low amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

Senate Bill 1146 now heads towards a full Senate vote.

In December, an initiative to legalize the recreational use of cannabis kicked off in Idaho.
