A Tennessee lawmaker wants to legalize marijuana use, cultivation, and sales across the state. Rep. Bob Freeman (D-Nashville) introduced HB 1968 on Jan. 25, which he is calling the “Free All Cannabis for Tennesseans Act.” As of Jan. 28, it had been assigned to the Criminal Justice Subcommittee for consideration. The bill would overhaul Tennessee laws to legalize recreational and medical pot across the board. If passed, adults 21 and up in the state would be allowed to use and possess up to 60 grams of marijuana for personal use. They would also be allowed to grow up to 12 marijuana plants on their private property so long as the growing area is not publically visible from the ground and is secured with locks or other devices. Minors with medical conditions would only be allowed to use medical marijuana with parental supervision after consulting with a doctor. The bill also sets standards for retail marijuana operations, making it legal to grow, process, and sell plants, seeds, and paraphernalia with the proper licenses from the Department of Agriculture.
