Details of possible GOP-sponsored legislation allowing the use of cannabis for treatment of certain ailments still aren’t yet hashed out.
A trio of Republican state lawmakers last week announced their tentative support for at least considering having a discussion on a limited medical marijuana bill.
State Sens. Mark Green of Clarksville and Steven Dickerson of Nashville, as well as Rep, Ryan Williams of Cookeville, told reporters last week that they didn’t yet have any solid aspects of the bill sorted out.
They were hoping to have a bill drafted with more solid information by Monday, but that doesn’t look to have happened.
The lawmakers proposal would likely go further than allowing low-THC oils for medical use, but not as far as legalizing “street” uses of marijuana, such as edibles.
Williams told TNReport late Monday that they were still working on drafting the legislation, and no other specific features were yet available.
Dickerson told the Tennessean Monday that the bill would likely deal with the low-THC oils, but would expand the use of that oil to individuals with other medical ailments.
