Joint Committee in Tennessee Debates Legalizing Cannabis Oil
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A joint committee met yesterday to debate medical marijuana legislation that would start an appointed commission to oversee regulations. One chairman of the committee, Rep. Jeremy Faison, introduced the proposal and advised that the bill would be the "strictest medical cannabis bills in America, but that's fine with me because I want the people who need it most to have it." He added that Tennessee is already one of the country’s top five states growing weed, and the state should have tax revenue for something that is already happening.
Faison believes that legalizing cannabis would also create between 50 to 100 jobs for every new cultivation facility. He also says that the current allowable amount of legal cannabis oil for sick children, which is .03 percent, is not strong enough for kids that have severe illnesses. The politician also said that people with sick children shouldn’t have to take their children to another state for treatment.
