Have debate, committee vote on medicinal marijuana

marijuanaKansas advocates of medicinal marijuana are due committee hearings and a full debate at the Statehouse. So are Kansans, given that 70 percent of those polled a year ago by SurveyUSA for KWCH, Channel 12, favored legalizing medical pot. A more than two-thirds majority of the Kansas Silver-Haired Legislature also recently recommended a bill to allow people to use marijuana if they have certain medical conditions and a physician’s recommendation. Such endorsements merit notice by the full Legislature, apart from the rapid gains that the legalization movement is making elsewhere in the country.
