Kansas medical marijuana

Kansas is one of three states that does not have a public state cannabis program. 

KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -- In the past decade, marijuana has become legal in some form across most of the country.

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 47 states have some type of legal cannabis program, ranging from recreational use or medical use.

Kansas is one of three remaining states, along with Idaho and Nebraska, to not have at least some form of legalization.

Advocates hope that changes.

The Kansas Medical Marijuana Regulation Act will get a hearing this week in the Kansas Legislature.

Proponents of the bill will speak on it this Wednesday, while opponents will testify Thursday.

The bill was introduced on Feb. 1, 2021. It was referred to the Committee on Federal and State Affairs.

Below is a copy of the bill:
