Report: Proposed medical marijuana bill in Louisiana would facilitate creation of distribution system
NEW IBERIA, La. — Medical marijuana may be legal in Louisiana but state Sen. Fred Mills, R-Parks, has introduced legislation to help establish a legal distribution system, which, according to a local news report, the state currently lacks.
According to The Daily Iberian, Senate Bill 143 would name several parties, including the state Board of Pharmacy and the state District Attorneys Association, as parties to craft a system of “checks and balances.”
Mills, a pharmacist, has introduced similar legislation in previous legislative sessions. However, this version includes a line — at the request of law enforcement leaders — that bans smoked or inhaled forms of marijuana, according to the report.
