Here’s their introduction…..

There are seven proposals filed in the General Assembly so far that would change state laws governing cannabis production and use. Sen. Jason Holsman, D-Kansas City, filed the New Approach Missouri initiative as aproposed constitutional amendment.

It might have a chance with lawmakers because attitudes are changing, he said.

“The polling shows the state is ready for medical cannabis,” Holsman said. “That is very strong across ideologies and parties. The drop-off is noticeable when you start talking about recreational marijuana, so let’s put first things first and let the sick get their medicine.”

Medical marijuana is getting bipartisan support from Boone County House members. Speaking at a meeting with University of Missouri retirees, Democratic state Reps. Stephen Webber and Kip Kendrick and Republican Rep. Caleb Rowden endorsed medical marijuana and Rep. Chuck Basye, R-Rocheport, said he would decide when a bill comes up for a vote.
