A Kansas House committee on Tuesday approved a bill to legalize medical marijuana in the state. Members of the House Federal and State Affairs Committee adopted a series of amendments before advancing the legislation in a 12-8 vote. This is the second time that panel has approved the reform proposal for this session. After passing in March, it was sent to the House floor but was then rereferred back to the committee for further consideration. Advocates are hopeful that the bill can clear the full House and Senate in the coming days during the legislative veto session. In the committee on Tuesday, Rep. Blake Carpenter (R) filed a wide-ranging amendment that was accepted in a voice vote.
