Senate passes its own medical marijuana package

Posted on May 9, 2012 by Dene Westbrook

Yesterday the Senate passed three bills that would address issues with medical marijuana.

Senate Bill 505 would prohibit an individual from being a caregiver if he or she has been convicted of a felony. SB 321 would prohibit medical marijuana use from being covered by personal injury protection (PIP) in an auto insurance policy.

The Senate also passed SB 933, a bill that allow employers to not reimburse charges for medical marijuana treatment under workers compensation. The bills now head to the House for consideration.
