SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah House of Representatives committee has against Senate Bill 73, a bill that would have made some forms of medical marijuana available to qualifying patients in Utah.
Sen. Mark Madsen (R-Saratoga Springs), who co-sponsors the bill, defended it before the House Health and Human Services Committee Monday. But committee members voted 8-4 against it. Senate Bill 73 would have allowed qualifying patients access to limited forms of medical marijuana, including oils, extracts and edibles.
The committee also discussed and favorably recommended Senate Bill 89, a bill which would allow qualifying patients to use cannabidiol, a marijuana extract with a low THC concentration.
