HB 243: Medical Home Cultivation
Will allow medical cannabis patients the right to cultivate cannabis in their own homes. Contact your elected officials now and ask them to vote ‘Yes’ on HB 243.
What it does: This bill is an a.m.endment to the 2011 Medical Cannabis law that will allow medical patients to cultivate 6 mature and 6 immature plants, using only organic methods of cultivation.
Status: Active and pending. HB 243 was introduced June 20, 2019.
SB 79-Medical Cannabis Program Amendment, Protect Patients’ Rights Bill
Protects card holding medical cannabis patients who already legally own a firearm by clarifying that they are not in violation of state law for possessing, owning, or controlling both cannabis and a legally owned firearm and/or a.m.munition for a firearm.
**Please note: This bill does not end the manufactured state-federal conflict that requires that a current medical cannabis patient disclose their medical cannabis patient status when applying for a background check to buy a firearm, and pertains only to state law.
