Kansas Senate Panel Struggles with Medical Marijuana Measure

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas Senate committee isn't ready to endorse a narrow medical marijuana proposal. The Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee voted Tuesday to forward a medical marijuana bill to the full Senate without a recommendation on whether it should pass. The measure would allow therapeutic hemp oil to be used in treating seizures. Republicans who control the panel expect the measure to be sent to another committee that handles health issues. The medical marijuana proposal had been tied to another proposal to lessen criminal penalties for first- and second-time marijuana possession. The House passed a single bill covering both subjects last year. The Senate corrections committee split the measures into two bills. It approved the one lowering penalties for marijuana possession and sent it to the full Senate for debate.
