Kansas

Kansas is one of the few remaining US state without any legalization of any type of cannabis product, including CBD. This is in spite of the facts that over 70% of the state voters agree to provide access to medical marijuana for patients with critical medical conditions. While numerous attempts to change this have been made, most recently with SB 155 and SB 187 in 2017, they have not successfully been passed.

Senate Bill SB 155 of 2017 sponsored by Senator David Haley proposes the enactment of a Cannabis Compassion and Care Act. This act will permit the legal use of marijuana for some debilitating conditions and enable compassion care centers to get registered.

There is hope in 2018 however, as SB 187 / HB 2348 will appear before law makers and once again attempt to establish a medical marijuana program in Kansas.
