Utah Medical Cannabis Bill Passes Senate Unanimously, Expected to Be Signed by Governor

Utah’s full Senate gave unanimous approval this evening to House Bill 105, a measure to legalize cannabis extracts for medical purposes.mmjlogo

The measure, which was approved by the House of Representatives recently with a 62 to 11 vote, will go back to the House for one final vote, before heading to the governor for consideration.

“The concept of having cannabis oil as a medication to help with the treatment of seizures and other health issues is one that I support,” Governor Gary Herbert said today, indicating that he’ll sign the proposal if sent to him.

If approved into law, House Bill 0105 would allow those in the state who receive a recommendation from a neurologist to legally possess and use cannabis extract (such as cannabis tincture and oil) that’s low in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), if they receive a waiver from Utah’s Department of Health.

Utah’s House is expected to give final approval to the measure sometime this month.
