Back in 2018, Utah’s legislature passed a bill to legalize medical marijuana in the state and the move was met with resistance and legal action from legalization advocates. Although voters in the state had voted to legalize medical marijuana via Proposition 2, state legislators combined the legislation with the Utah Medical Cannabis Act. According to Gov. Gary Herbert, the legislation acted as a bridge between opponents of Proposition 2. However, groups like Together for Responsible Use and Cannabis Education (“TRUCE”) and the Epilepsy Association of Utah were not comfortable with the medical cannabis initiative and filed a lawsuit against the legislature. Two years and countless court battles later, TRUCE announced that the group will withdraw the lawsuit.
