Kansas House Committee Votes to Legalize Medical Use of Cannabis Extracts
Kansas’ House Bill 2282 has been passed by the House Committee on Health and Human Services, setting it up for a full House vote.
House Bill 2282 would legalize the possession and use of low-THC cannabis extracts (such as tinctures, oils and lotions) for those who have seizure disorders and receive a recommendation from a physician. The cannabis extracts would be required to have no more than 3% THC, making CBD (cannabidiol) oil the most likely option for patients.
House Bill 2282 would establish safe access points to distribute the medicine.
Those in Kansas who support the legalization of medical cannabis should contact their district’s legislators – which they can look up by clicking here – and urge them to support House Bill 2282, as well as further reform to allow for medical cannabis to be used for more than just epilepsy, and to allow the entire cannabis plant, not just low-THC extracts.
