Indiana Lawmaker to Introduce Bill to Legalize Medical Marijuana

A lawmaker in Indiana says he plans to introduce a bill to legalize medical marijuana.

Republican State Representative Jim Lucas (Seymour) says he has “every intention of introducing a bill that legalizes medical marijuana”, according to the Indy Star.

“I can’t comprehend how we can deny people something that provides them with relief that’s not addictive and is not killing anyone when we know for a fact that prescription opioids are killing people,” says Lucas, who has been seeking feedback from doctors, veterans organizations, cannabis advocacy groups like NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), and Facebook users.
