Medical Marijuana Bill Passes Second House Committee in Tennessee

A bill that would allow some Tennessee residents to use medical marijuana recently passed the House Criminal Justice Committee with a 9-2 vote. The bill would provide a legal defense to the crime of possessing marijuana to individuals who suffer from certain specifically designated illnesses and medical conditions with a doctor’s note prescribing cannabis.

The proposed bill does not legalize the recreational use of marijuana. The Senate version of the bill has not yet been taken up in committee.
