Medical marijuana
A Tennessee lawmaker has reintroduced a bill that would allow for the use of medical marijuana. The bill would allow patients access to cannabis on a regular basis, and would regulate the process of licensing growers. “There are tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of Tennesseans that could benefit from medical cannabis,” argues state Senator Janice Bowling (R-Tullahoma). She says the legalization would also reduce opioid abuse. “This is desperately needed in Tennessee, it is desperately needed by the patient, and doctors need an alternative to opioids,” the senator adds.
