Interview With Senator Anna Wishart On Medical Cannabis
Wednesday, advocates for LB 474, (the medical cannabis bill) failed to overcome a fillabuster and vote for or against the issue on the floor of the Nebraska Legislature.
Less than 24 hours after the vote, supporters announced intent to reactivate a signature drive for a 2022 medical cannabis initiative.
Last fall supporters of expanding cannabis in the state had more than enough signatures to place the issue on the ballot, but a last minute court challenge from the Secretary of State's office, at the request of the Governor, stripped the issue from the ballot for violating the states single subject rule.
State Senator Anna Wishart of Lincoln and leading advocate for medical cannabis, joined KRGI News Director Tyson Havranek Friday afternoon for an in-depth discussion on the issue.
