According to various reports, a Bill designed to legalize marijuana will not make it through the Tennessee Legislature this year, despite support from both political parties. A resolution proposed by Representative Sabi Kumar suggested use purely for medicinal purposes, but claims by Dr. Michael Warren, deputy commissioner for Population Health at the Tennessee Department of Health, that marijuana was addictive and did little to reduce use, and abuse of opioids, were attacked by the proponents of the Bill. In the end, the Bill was sent to ‘Summer study,’ though advocates seem to think even this small progress will not ensure it passes through the Senate in its current form.
