Missouri Lawmakers Take Hard Look at Medical Marijuana

(AP) – Montel Williams is joining a Missouri Republican in efforts to allow patients with specific ailments access to medical marijuana with a state-monitored distribution program.
A House committee on Monday will consider a bill that would set up a process for patients to register for access to marijuana for cancer, HIV, post-traumatic stress disorder and other medical conditions.
Republican Rep. Dave Hinson’s bill would not allow recreational use of marijuana. It would require growers and distributors of medical marijuana to be licensed and follow certain security procedures.
Williams, a TV personality with multiple sclerosis, uses marijuana to treat some of his symptoms and will testify in support of the bill.
He says Missouri could be a model for other states.
Twenty-three states have comprehensive medical marijuana laws.
