Utah Senate Committee Votes to Legalize Medical Cannabis

Legislation tobudplant legalize the possession, use and state-licensed distribution of medical cannabis has been approved by Utah’s Senate Judiciary Committee with a 3 to 2 vote.

Senate Bill 259, filed by Republican Senator Mark Madsen from Saratoga Springs, would allow those with debilitating conditions – including HIV/AIDS, cancer and epilepsy – to possess and use cannabis-infused products such as gummys and tinctures, in addition to cannabis oil. Unfortunately smoking of the actual cannabis plant would remain – oddly enough – prohibited.

Under Senate Bill 259, dispensaries that become licensed with the state would be authorized to distribute cannabis products to qualifying patients.
