No medical marijuana this year
Tennessee lawmakers have ended efforts to legalize medical marijuana until next year. Sen. Steve Dickerson, a doctor who is one of the biggest advocates in the Tennessee legislature for medical marijuana, said during a Senate hearing Wednesday he was r delaying all bills involving cannabis until 2020. The House also had rolled the bills until next year, Dickerson said. Less than an hour before a planned hearing, Dickerson had intended to modify an existing bill to introduce a detailed proposal to legalize and regulate medical marijuana throughout Tennessee. But the senator said he was convinced the bill would fail before the hearing began, and decided it was better to delay the proposal than watch it fail in committee.
