Utah may not be ready for medical marijuana this year as the bill failed to pass the state senate by just a single vote. However the senator sponsoring the bill is not giving up, he will reintroduce the bill next year now that he has the the governers public approval in hopes of a better turnout. As with most marijuana bills, legislators are taking baby steps to ensure nothing is overlooked. Gov. Herbert is eager to get medicine to patients but does not want to spark recreational medical visits.
"I'm open to the idea of medical marijuana and the discussion of how it can be used as a medicine based on science, and making sure we have good, collaborative efforts so we can answer the questions that are out there," the governor said.
