Medical Marijuana Bill Filed
AP Friday January 19, 2018

Two Republican lawmakers have introduced legislation to make medical marijuana legal in Tennessee, but only in oil-based products.
Senator Steve Dickerson of Nashville and Representative Jeremy Faison of Cosby announced the bill's filing Thursday amid wide support for medical marijuana in state polls.
The lawmakers said they believe the change could benefit 65,000 Tennesseans. Patients would have to have certain medical conditions, from cancer to post-traumatic stress disorder.
The legislation would not allow use of recreational marijuana.
The National Conference of State Legislatures said 29 states have medical marijuana programs, which vary in form.
State Republican lawmakers have been split on the issue. Senate Speaker Randy McNally of Oak Ridge has opposed any kind of marijuana legalization. House Speaker Beth Harwell of Nashville said she understands the need for medical marijuana, but has opposed recreational.

Lawmaker Moves to Drop Voucher Push
AP Thursday January 18, 2018

A Tennessee lawmaker has taken steps to follow through on a promise not to pursue school voucher legislation this year.
On Wednesday, Rep. Harry Brooks of Knoxville withdrew his bill from consideration for now.
Brooks and Sen. Brian Kelsey of Germantown have said that this year, they won't continue the longstanding push to implement school vouchers.
Vouchers allow public school children to use taxpayer money to go to private schools. Brooks and Kelsey had unsuccessfully advocated last year for a voucher pilot program in Shelby County.
Supporters say vouchers give parents choices. Opponents fear vouchers will drain funding from public schools.
