Title: Medical Cannabis Bill Passes Key TN House Committee
Author: Local Memphis
Date: 28 March 2018
After nearly two hours of testimony and some surprise support here, history was made for medical cannabis in the state of Tennessee. Lawmakers in a key House committee passed a stripped down medical cannabis bill by a vote of 9 -2. The bill now heads to the Health Committee.
“At the end of the day we have advanced medical marijuana with the THC in it farthest than has ever happened so far,” said Rep. Jeremy Faison, the bill’s sponsor.
Earlier, emotional testimony was heard on the issue that’s divided Tennessee’s Capitol Hill over medical cannabis. There was a seizure victim who told how she’s helped by cannabis.
