Marijuana committee to meet
Tennessee lawmakers plan to hold their first meeting this month to study the issue of legalizing medical marijuana this month. The Joint Committee on Medical Cannabis will study and evaluate as part of a comprehensive review on whether it serves the state's interest in making the drug available to sick Tennesseans on a limited basis. House Government Operations Committee Chairman Jeremy Faison, R-Cosby, and Sen. Steve Dickerson, R-Nashville, a physician, said the panel will make recommendations about future legislation for members of the General Assembly to consider in the upcoming 2018 legislative session. The five-hour hearing by the ten-member panel is scheduled for Sept. 21. Besides Dickerson, two other lawmakers who are doctors, Sen. Richard Briggs, R-Knoxville and Sen. Joey Hensley, R-Hohenwald are serving on the panel. Past efforts have failed in the General Assembly to legalize marijuana for medical purposes. A number of states have legalized use of pot for medical purposes.
