Medical marijuana legalization is expected to be a hot debate topic among Indiana lawmakers in the new legislative session. Governor Holcomb is “open” to the idea. Several groups oppose legalization of any kind.
Senator Jim Tomes opposes medical marijuana but supports CBD oil, according to Tristate Homepage. Hoosiers have been voicing their support for medical marijuana legalization. Despite the support from residents, lawmakers are still timid.
Senator Tomes said, “Without the properties of giving a person a high, the CBD oil, I say why don’t we give it a chance, give it a year and see how it works. It may do just what some people think marijuana will do.”
