House Democrat Opens Medical Marijuana Bill File

SALT LAKE CITY – Today Representative Brian King (D-District 28) announced he opened a bill file titled "Medical Marijuana Modifications" for the 2019 General Session to serve as a method for the legislature to address the issue in the next session.   

“It may be that we need to make modifications to problematic aspects of Proposition 2, if it passes,” said Rep. King.  “Or we may need to put in place meaningful medical cannabis legislation if Proposition 2 fails. Many of those opposing Prop 2 have said they favor medical marijuana but not the specifics of the proposition. Regardless of the outcome, medical cannabis will continue to be an important public policy for Utahns.  I look forward to working collaboratively with all stakeholders to develop the best policy outcome possible for Utah patients."
