SB 419 (2016) relative to certain changes in the law governing the therapeutic use of cannabis.
House/Senate Bill: Senate
Description: As originally written, this bill would allow providers in neighboring states to prescribe medical marijuana, and would change the amount of marijuana dispensaries may have on location. The Senate amended the bill to instead revise confidentiality requirements for law enforcement requests for information about registered medical marijuana patients. The House then amended the bill to make a number of changes to the medical marijuana law, such as limiting criminal background checks to felony convictions.
