There has been a public discussion about Medicinal Cannabis. I have had a number of people contact me, including constituents that have expressed support for Medicinal Cannabis. Medicinal Cannabis differs from "medicinal marijuana" in that you don't smoke it, but take the chemical compound in tablet form.
I am preparing to conduct a survey and have a discussion to see where my constituents are on this issue.
Here are a couple of links to related articles about Medicinal Cannabis:
What do you think about Medicinal Cannabis?
There was a recent discussion among legislators and there was zero support (including Democrats and Libertarians) for Medicinal Cannabis. However, since then there have been several Legislators, including Rep. Brian Greene who have now publicly supported Medicinal Cannabis. I am not aware of any proposed legislation, but it could happen in the next legislative session. I have a feeling how this survey will go, but I would like to have this discussion in our area.
