The Mississippi House Drug Policy Committee has amended the Senate’s medical marijuana bill before it heads to the floor for a vote.
The changes include:
- The maximum amount of medical marijuana a person can receive each month goes from 3.5 ounces to 3 ounces.
- Any potential role for the Mississippi Department of Agriculture has been removed. Commissioner Andy Gipson has previously been outspoken in his concerns with the bill.
- Cultivators and processors can now be located in areas with commercial zoning.
The Senate passed the Mississippi Medical Cannabis Act with a vote of 46-5 last Tuesday.
