Utah State Legislature to consider two medical marijuana bills
SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah State Legislature will consider two separate medical marijuana bills when it meets next year.
But cannabis advocates claim only one of those bills will actually do patients some good.
The legislature's interim Health and Human Services Committee met Wednesday to discuss a pair of bills. One is sponsored by Rep. Brad Daw, R-Orem; the other is sponsored by Sen. Mark Madsen, R-Saratoga Springs.
Rep. Daw said his bill would allow for cannabidoil to be used to treat a long list of diseases and conditions including cancer, HIV/AIDS, and epilepsy. He told the committee that prescribing doctors would provide research on its effectiveness to the legislature that would be considered when the law would come up for renewal.

Florida Supreme Court cancels medical marijuana hearing
Attorney General Pam Bondi announced last week that she would not launch a challenge to the constitutional amendment, so the Florida Supreme Court called off the scheduled hearing on the matter. Justices will still need to approve the ballot’s wording before the measure can move forward, however, as reported by North Escambia.
People United for Medical Marijuana sponsored the bill seeking to authorize marijuana use by individuals suffering from any “physician certified debilitating medical condition.”
