indiana marijuana house bill hb 1006When it comes to medical marijuana reform, the State of Indiana is likely not the first state that comes to mind. However, emboldened by new federal policy that de-funded medical marijuana raids in states that have passed medical marijuana laws, Indiana appears to have a medical marijuana bill on the horizon. Per NUVO:

Sen. Karen Tallian (D-Portage) has proposed bills in the past that would have simply made pot legal. In the 2015 legislative session, Tallian says she will take a medical approach to the issue.

“My bills in the past have only addressed the decriminalization of marijuana, but I had planned on including a medical facet of the proposal that would allow for medical marijuana in Indiana,” said Tallian in a released statement. “For this upcoming session, I have a bill ready to file to legalize medical marijuana.”

Tallian says she finds the recent events in Washington to be encouraging on this issue. The federal spending bill, approved by Congress, includes a provision that eliminates federal raids in states where medicinal marijuana is legal.

I’m curious to see what type of medical marijuana bill is filed. Will it be a CBD-only bill? Because if so, that’s disheartening. If it allows all forms of medical marijuana, will there be home cultivation and provisions to create dispensaries? A truly effective medical marijuana bill will allow safe access for all patients, and will allow home cultivation. Anything is obviously better than nothing, but I’m hopeful that Indiana goes about this the right way.

    First off a huge thanks to Sen. Tallian for her efforts to help Hoosiers gain access to a much safer treatment in the fight against cancer and other illnesses. She seems to be the only activist in Indiana! NORML seems to of given up any and all efforts and seem to of vanished out of IN.

    I wish Indiana would show a little compassion but they won’t! We have a tea party governor that is considering running for president. We have Eli-Lilly and Roche big pharm companies who pad all the politicians pockets! Indiana blocks information about medical marijuana and cannabis on city wifi’ across the state so people stay uneducated and misinformed. The journalist in IN suck since they are all bought and sold buy the republicans that own them and lead them to write BULLSHIT fearing propaganda!
    Come on INDIANA and wake the Fuck up….PLEASE!
