Medical Marijuana Bill Moves Forward
A bill that would Legalize Medical marijuana in the state of Tennessee has advanced out of subcommittee. The Tennessee House Health Subcommittee voted last week to advance house bill 2641. That bill would allow qualified patients to use and possess certain forms and amounts of medical cannabis. A patient who qualifies for medical cannabis would not be allowed to exceed 3 grams of Delta 9 (THC) in a concentrated product or 3,000 milligrams of Delta 9 (THC) in infused products. The Tennessee Medical Cannabis Commission would be required to create and maintain a secure online database for qualifying patients, designated caregivers, and qualifying physicians. That database would also be accessible by law enforcement as well. Recreational use marijuana would still be illegal under this bill which now moves to the full house health committee.
