Sen. Karen Tallian, D-Portage, has once again filed medical cannabis-related bills ahead of the start of the 2019 legislative session.
She filed two bills Tuesday. The first would establish a Cannabis Compliance Commission, which would oversee state regulation of anything related to the sale, use, or consumption of cannabis.
The other would legalize recreational marijuana possession of less than 2 ounces, according to a press release.
Legalizing medical cannabis is a part of the Indiana Senate Democratic Caucus’ 2019 legislative agenda.
Last month, Indiana Senate Democrats—led by Minority Leader Tim Lanane, D-Anderson, and Sen. Eddie Melton, D-Merrillville—unveiled their priorities for the new year, which included proposing legislation to legalize medical cannabis.
