Kansas House of Representatives approved medical marijuana legalization bill clearing it for a floor vote in May 2021. Legalization would include 21 qualifying conditions, including chronic pain. Smoking and vaping products are prohibited, as well as home grown. Medical legalization is a step forward but lawmakers need to stop prohibiting smokable and vaping products. The bill fell short with the Senate, the measure will will pick up in early 2022. The Governor supports medicL legalization but the Republican-controlled Senate remains an obstacle.
