The Benefits Far Outweigh The Detriments, Haley Said.

Sen.David Haley wrote the bill. He saysthe bill is overdue and colorado marijuana will help the state. The benefits far outweigh the detriments, Haley said. The bill, SB 155, is not the first of its kind for Kansas, but as of yet, no bills legalizing marijuana for medical purposes have passed. KAKE News spoke to Kansas resident Tracy Marling three years ago, at the time her daughter was dealing with a rare form of epilepsy that was not responding to traditional medicines well. On Monday, she spoke again about how hard it is watching her daughter deal with such a dangerous illness, and how the young girl is responding better to a natural alternative, marijuana. She has been on so many medicines, Marling said of her 10-year-old daughter Sophie. Marling packed up her bags a few months ago and headed for Colorado where medical marijuana is legal and since then, she says her daughter is healthier with medications containing ingredients in marijuana. If there is something that helps somebody this much, there is no reason why they shouldnt have access to it, to better their life, Marling said. Kansas does not have any statutes that allow or decriminalize marijuana possession, both for medical and recreational purposes. In the United States, there are 28 states that allow medical marijuana. Other states have rules and regulations that make possessing marijuana a less severe criminal punishment.
