Kansas Medical Marijuana Bill A Non-Starter

Lawmakers in Topeka appear poised to ignore a measure allowing marijuana to be legally prescribed to chronically ill Kansans.

In an interview the bill’s sponsor Gail Finney says a lot of constituents are being ignored. Finney says she is seeking a state-regulated program to allow physicians to write prescriptions for marijuana for people with cancer, AIDS, MS and other diseases.

The Speaker of the House and the chairwoman of the House’s health committee have not taken steps to hold hearings or otherwise advance the bill.
