Earlier on March 7, the House passed the same bill by a voice vote. Once it gets the signal from both , it will head back to the desk of the governor.
The approval of the bill HB-364 is a historic event in the Senate as this is going to be the first time that the Senate will support such legislation whereby allowing home cultivation of medical cannabis. As per the House Bill 364, every patient will be allowed to possess a certain quantity of cannabis plants and seedlings. As per the bill recommendations, every patient will be allowed to possess 12 seedlings, 3 mature, 3 immature cannabis plant.
