Louisiana’s medical marijuana patients could administer cannabis via inhaler if senators agree to a proposal that won overwhelming support from lawmakers in the state House, a development that could provide more sales opportunities for MMJ businesses.
The House voted 73-3 for the proposal, sending it to the Senate for debate.
Louisiana lawmakers created the framework for dispensing medical marijuana four years ago, but regulatory hurdles and disagreements have slowed getting the product to shelves.
One of the state’s two sanctioned growers estimates medicinal-grade marijuana could be available in June.
