As re-legalized cannabis seeps from the coast into the heartland, again and again it is medicinal marijuana that opens the door.
Here’s some of what’s going on in a few states:
“With a proposed constitutional amendment on the horizon, the House voted 71-26 on Tuesday to potentially make Ohio the 26th state to give residents legal access to medical marijuana. Some members expressed reluctance about the bill — a vote on which would have been near unfathomable just a few years ago — but after hearing of the drug’s benefits and facing the prospect of a less-restrictive constitutional amendment on the November ballot, the bill was sent to the Senate.”
Full story is HERE.
“A bill that would allow pharmacists to dispense medical marijuana in Louisiana has passed the state House of Representatives and is heading back to the state Senate. The House approved Senate Bill 271 with changes. If the Senate passes those changes, it will head to the governor’s desk for final approval.
The bill would establish a viable medical marijuana program in Louisiana and add seizure disorders and other debilitating conditions to the list of illnesses that qualify for medical marijuana. Only three conditions are allowed to be prescribed medical marijuana under the state’s current law.”

“Missourians will see two tobacco tax proposals, a plan to prohibit extending sales tax to services and a measure legalizing medical marijuana on the Nov. 8 ballot if the initiative campaigns delivering signatures this weekend have met their goals . . . New Approach Missouri, which is proposing medical marijuana, has gathered more than 250,000 signatures, spokesman Jack Cardetti said. The proposal would make marijuana available for patients with severe diseases including cancer, AIDS and post-traumatic stress disorder. A tax of 4 percent on retail sales would raise $17 million to $21 million annually for veterans’ programs.
There’s been a tremendous outpouring of support for this effort to allow medical marijuana to patients with serious and debilitating illnesses,” Cardetti said. A bill to ease restrictions on marijuana for hospice patients was defeated in the Missouri House this session, but it was the farthest any proposal for legal marijuana has gotten in the General Assembly.”

Notice the pace of change picking up? Another indication the tipping point has passed.
