State Senator Janice Bowling (R-Tullahoma), who was against the use of medical cannabis until recently, is reintroducing a bill that would allow the sale and use of medical cannabis in Tennessee. As reported by Tennessee’s WKRN, the bill is likely to face stiff opposition from the same players who shot it down last time it was introduced.
Bowling hopes attitudes have evolved since the bill’s last
introduction, giving it a fighting chance in the Tennessee legislature. In the video within the article, Bowling acknowledges that
thousands of Tennessee citizens need this medication. A recent poll confirms
that point, with 81% of Tennesseans supporting the bill.
