Kansas Dems. remain committed to passage of medical marijuana legislation
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Kansas’ top Democrat in the House remains committed to the passage of medical marijuana legislation in the upcoming session.
Kansas House Democratic Leader Tom Sawyer (D-Wichita) says an additional day for the interim committee on medical marijuana has been approved instead of the previously requested two days.
“Quite simply, I don’t believe this is enough,” Rep. Sawyer said. “The voters have been clear time and time again that legalizing medical marijuana is a top policy priority, and I couldn’t agree with them more. Delaying and dismissing the issue is unresponsive and does little to help the legislature pass sound policy.”
Sawyer indicated that he remains fully committed to a bipartisan partnership to help “pass a bill that will become law next year.”
