Salt Lake City Marijuana Bill
Senators in Salt Lake City Utah have given the green light for supporters in favor of the medical marijuana proposal that legalizes edible, vapor, and other cannabis products. The bill was sent to the Senate and the vote 15-13 in favor of the bill. Republican Senator Mark Madsen advocated that the expected benefits from using medical marijuana would provide relief for individuals who suffer from chronic pain and illness. There was opposition from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but the church relaxed its position due to the fact that many lawmakers who are in favor of the bill are also members of the faith.
