Utah Ready to Start Debating the Merits of Medical Marijuana

SALT LAKE CITY — Proponents of medical marijuana say it would be tightly controlled in Utah if it becomes legal.

“There won’t be dispensaries on every corner,” said Connor Boyack, president of the Libertas Institute, a group that advocates individual freedom. “You’re not going to have people saying, ‘Cough, cough, I’m sick. I need some cannabis.'”

But the Utah Medical Association opposes legalization until scientific evidence is collected through well-controlled studies to validate safe and effective medical uses.

Opponents and advocates of legalized medical marijuana will stake out their positions over the next few months as Sen. Mark Madsen, R-Saratoga Springs, drafts a bill for the 2016 Legislature. [Read more at the Salt Lake City Deseret News]
