Tennessee introduced new marijuana decriminalization bills. One bill would decriminalize possession of less than one ounce of pot and the other bill would protect holders of medical marijuana identification cards from other states. The bills were sponsored by Democratic Sen. Sara Kyle and House of Representative Democrat Rep. Gloria Johnson.
The SB256/HB235 would amend state statue to decriminalize possession of less than one ounce of cannabis. SB260/HB234 would permit holders of medical marijuana program identification cards from other states to possess up to one-half an ounce of cannabis. The bill removes criminal penalties for medical marijuana cardholders.
Republicans lawmakers Sen. Janice Bowling and Rep. Ron Travis announced plans to introduce legislation that would legalize medical marijuana in Tennessee.
Janice Bowling believe cannabis can part of the solution to the nationwide epidemic of opioid overdose deaths.
All four cannabis bills are now pending for approval before the Tennessee legislature!
