A resolution to study medicinal marijuana was killed in the North Dakota House, but some state lawmakers say the issue may not end there.
Earlier this session a bill to legalize medicinal marijuana also failed.
The study would have directed Legislative Management to study the legalization of the drug for people with “serious medical conditions.”
The carrier of the resolution’s “Do Not Pass” recommendation Rep. Todd Porter (R) Mandan says the majority of the House Human Services Committee “couldn’t find anything that wasn’t already taken care of in the hearing process.”
Rep. Gail Mooney says not studying the issue could be an “invitation for an initiated measure.”
“I think that the best way that we can prepare ourselves for the people, for our law enforcement and our healthcare providers is to vote green, study it, understand what we’re getting into,” says Rep. Gail Mooney (D) Cummings.
The resolution to study the issue failed in the House 32 to 61.
