NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two major health issues, cannabis and opioids, are getting plenty renewed attention on Tennessee’s Capitol Hill as one major bill was filed Thursday and another is expected next week.
Lt. Governor Randy McNally said Thursday that a “comprehensive” opioids bill is expected to be introduced next week by Governor Bill Haslam to deal with what’s been called the state’s top health crisis.
It comes as a new bill called “The Medical Cannabis Only Act” was filed by the Republican lawmakers, who led a task force last year looking into the issue.
