Medical Cannabis Bill Approved by Idaho Senate Committee
The proposal, which is likely to receive a public hearing in the near future, is sponsored by Senator Curt McKenzie, who is the Chairman of the Senate State Affairs Committee.
Legislation to legalize the medical use of cannabis oil is continuing to gain popularity throughout the United States. In addition to numerous states legalizing the medicine last year, several states are taking the same approach this year; just this week Virginia’s governor signed a medical cannabis extract bill into law, Georgia’s House of Representatives voted 158 to 2 to legalize medical cannabis extracts, and Utah’s Senate Judiciary Committee voted to do the same (as did Kansas’ House Committee on Health and Human Services).
In December, an initiative to legalize the recreational use of cannabis kicked off in Idaho.
