Republican Gubernatorial Candidate ‘Open’ to Medical Marijuana Law in Tennessee
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The treatment of her sister’s back injury has caused Republican gubernatorial candidate Beth Harwell to reevaluate Tennessee’s ban on medical marijuana.
Harwell, who is speaker of the state House of Representatives, told a Republican gathering earlier this month that allowing medical marijuana has come up as part of a discussion about how to tackle the state’s opioid crisis.
The longtime Nashville representative said her sister was recently prescribed opioids after breaking her back.
“She was in a yoga class and came down out of a shoulder stand the wrong way,” Harwell said. “And she was, of course, in a great deal of pain.”
But after the initial doses, she wanted to stop taking the painkillers.
The feds seized guns, gold and 320 pot plants. So why did a judge rule they can't pursue marijuana charges?
When agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration raided a remote farm in Humboldt County five years ago, they found plenty to incriminate the owners, Anthony Pisarski and Sonny Moore.
More than 300 marijuana plants were growing in a pair of greenhouses. Agents found guns in a house on the sprawling property and about $225,000 in cash, much of it bundled in vacuum-sealed pouches, hidden in a garage and some pickup trucks. Later searches uncovered another large stash of cash, along with bars of gold and silver.
Pisarski and Moore ultimately pleaded guilty to a federal charge of conspiring to manufacture and sell marijuana.
