Medical marijuana bills face resistance from local patients

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (News4Utah) - State lawmakers are trying to address medical marijuana usage in Utah. 

A few bills introduced during the legislature are looking to address this issue, while advocates are looking to take the decision out of the hands of the legislature all together.

Founder and Executive Director of TRUCE Christine Stenquist stops by Inside Utah Politics to discuss her view on some of these bills.

One of them would give terminally patients the "right to try." 

"We see a lot of problems in this particular bill. First off it limits the patients ability to use inhalation as a method.So, there's absolutely no flower allowed accessible in this bill. And also the patient has to be 6 months away from death," Stenquist said. 

She also talks about the 25 patient cap among physicians and the prospective ballot initiative.
