Kansas News

TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas House has moved forward with a bill that would legalize medical marijuana in Kansas, voting 79-42 Thursday. The bill will now head to Senate.

Earlier this week, a House committee approved the measure to send it to the full House, a first in Kansas.

The bill known as House Substitute for SB158 cleared the House Committee on Federal and State Affairs in a 12 to 8 vote, according to FOX4’s Capitol Bureau. After receiving some amendments, it was sent to the House floor for discussion. 

The bill previously was voted out of committee but did not receive a full discussion on the floor. The bill would need to clear both the House and Senate before the end of this session.
