TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – The medical marijuana bill will be at the forefront of Kansas lawmakers’ debate Thursday morning. The session is at 10 a.m.

Earlier this week, a House committee approved the measure to send it to the full House, a first in Kansas. If passed, it would allow the state to license and regulate the sale of medical marijuana.

The bill would need to clear both the House and Senate before the end of this session.
