Democrats in the Kansas House unveiled three proposed constitutional amendments Jan. 6: one to expand Medicaid and two that would legalize medical and adult-use cannabis, according to a KWCH report.

If approved by the Legislature, the proposals would go before voters on the 2022 ballot for approval, the news outlet reported. If passed, lawmakers would then need to implement the new laws by July 1, 2023.

Last year, the Kansas House approved a medical cannabis legalization bill, which ultimately stalled in the Senate.
