Tennessee to Legalize Cannabis?
A wide variety of cannabis legalization measures have been introduced, yet again, to the Tennessee General Assembly – ranging from medical cannabis, decriminalization of cannabis, and outright legalization of cannabis.
Should legalization be enacted into law, Tennessee would follow Mississippi’s recent legalization, becoming the 38th state to legalize cannabis.
Rep. Jason Powell recently said, “My House Joint Resolution 742 would create a state constitution to allow medical cannabis in the state of Tennessee”
Powell is the Rep. who introduced a bill allowing for medical cannabis use based on the overwhelming majority of Tennessee voters supporting legalization measures.
“The reality is what we need to do is focus on helping Tennesseans who have severe chronic and terrible health conditions — their quality of life would be greatly enhanced with medical cannabis,” Powell said.
While the prospects of medical cannabis legalization are exciting for Tennesseans, Rep. Bob Freeman is pushing for outright legalization in his bill.
“25-year war on drugs that looped in cannabis into that war has sent many people to prison, ruined lives, and it’s time we move past this and legalized it – 37 states have already done this,” Freeman said.
Freeman adds, Tennessee is missing out on growing, cultivating, selling, and taxing what he cites is already a billion-dollar industry. “It could be a half a billion dollars in revenue a year for the state there’s some projections that currently what is consumed and grown in the state of Tennessee is almost $2 billion right now, obviously it’s illegal today and there’s no tax revenue gained.”
Will Tennessee legalize cannabis? Only time will tell. But with 37 states already reaping the benefit of cannabis taxation to help with expenses, we believe it is only a matter of time.
