Kansas lawmakers introduced a medical cannabis legalization bill Jan. 13 with the backing of the Kansas Cannabis Industry Association, according to a local KSNT report.

The bill’s supporters say that a regulated medical cannabis market may help boost the state’s economy, the news outlet reported, and they are confident the legislation has the support it needs in the legislature if it is called up for a vote.

“We don’t want to miss the economic benefits of that, but we also don’t want to miss the true benefits that have been discovered as other states have gotten into it, and that we’ve heard from people firsthand even here in Kansas that have used it in other states, and that’s the number one priority,” Kansas Cannabis Industry Association Executive Director Spencer Duncan told KSNT.
