Senate Bill 506, To allow "medical marijuana": Passed 45 to 5 in the state Senate on April 17, 2017
The bill allows for a limited number of companies to produce and sell marijuana for medical purposes called out in law, including the treatment of cancer, multiple sclerosis, and Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS). It expands on a law, which will expire in July, which allows the use of some marijuana purposes for the treatment of epilepsy if diagnosed by a neurologist. This bill would not allow marijuana in its smoked form.
