Bills lessening marijuana restrictions stall in House

KSAL StaffMarch 15, 2015

Bills easing the state’s restrictions on marijuana are moving deeper into the Kansas Legislature than ever before, but face an uncertain future at the midpoint of the session.

The Kansas House in late February decided to delay action on two marijuana bills. One would decrease penalties for an offender’s first two marijuana possession convictions. The other allows some seizure patients to receive treatments from marijuana-based medicines.

Republican Rep. John Rubin of Shawnee sponsored the bill on marijuana sentencing. He said it was delayed because of the timing of Wichita’s city election next month in which a ballot measure will ask voters whether to decriminalize first-time possession.

The seizures bill passed the House committee. Democratic sponsor Rep. John Wilson is seeking necessary votes on the House floor from Republicans.
