A Tennessee bill seeking to make cannabis legal for medical purposes is moving forward. The “Tennessee Medical Cannabis Act” seeks to regulate medical marijuana. Proposed by State Sen. Janice Bowling (R-Tullahoma) and Rep. Iris Rudder (R-Winchester), SB0854/HB0621 would also allow licenses for providers of medical cannabis which would allow for the cultivation, transportation, transport, and selling to dispensaries. Among the “qualifying conditions” to use medical cannabis include cancer, glaucoma, epilepsy, HIV/AIDS, Crohn’s disease, muscular sclerosis, opioid addiction, renal failure, severe nausea or chronic pain, persistent muscle spasm, PTSD, severe psoriasis, ALS, Parkinson’s, and end of life pain management. The measure is moving to the Senate Judiciary Committee after the Senate Government Operations Wednesday morning recommended it for passage on Wednesday. On Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary killed SB 0153, a bill 5-4 legalizing THC levels from legal hemp and CBD products.
