Scorecard: Senate Omnibus Marijuana Package

Blogger’s Note: Since the previous scorecard post went up regarding marijuana bills in the House, HB1455 died in the House Consumer Protection (CPC) committee. The only marijuana bill alive in the House is HB321.

Despite hearing the same exact testimony on nearly identical measures, much more controversial bills in the Senate breezed through their committees. Amongst the measures advancing are two bills to legalize marijuana via different mechanisms. Of the legislation being tracked from Wednesday’s hearings, only SB228 (Expanding the definition of marijuana to include concentrated derivatives) did not advance.

While advancing bills were amended from their original form, the specific changes will not be known until the committee reports are posted online.
