Senate Bill 251, the “Safe Access to Medical Cannabis Act,” would allow for the qualified use, production, and distribution of medical marijuana by authorized persons.
NORML supported similar legislation last year and retained a state lobbyist to work on behalf of the measure. Lawmakers held numerous hearings in support of the proposal, and agreed to study the issue further.
Fifteen states Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington and the District of Columbia have enacted laws protecting medical marijuana patients from state prosecution. There is no legitimate reason why Tennessee patients should not enjoy these same legal protections.
