(KUTV) – Two bills related to medical marijuana in Utah passed out of the Utah House of Representatives and now moves on to the Senate.
House Bill 195, known as the “right-to-try” medical cannabis bill would allow terminally ill patients to try medical marijuana.
A companion bill, House Bill 197, would give the state of Utah a monopoly on marijuana cultivation, processing, and sales of medical cannabis.
Both bills, which both now move on to the Senate, are sponsored by Rep. Brad Daw (R-Orem) and Rep. Evan Vickers (R- Cedar City)
That’s despite opposition from House Democrats, who say they support a statewide medical marijuana initiative over the Republican H.B. 197.
