Medical marijuana use in Kansas is still illegal but there are advocates fighting to make Kansas the 17th state to allow medical marijuana use. A certain Senator would not even consider hearing about the new bill let alone vote for it. She stated it was a waste of time to even consider it and refused to help improve the health and welfare of Kansas citizens. This new bill others are fighting for would help allow licensed nonprofit groups be able to dispense up to six ounces of marijuana a month and even grow it for those who have a physician's prescription and card given by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. It would help those with cancer, AIDS, hepatitis c, Crohn's disease, MS, severe pain, nausea and more.
