SALT LAKE CITY — A $300,000 legislative budget request for a study to determine the prevalence of cannabis and opioid use by pregnant women in Utah hit a roadblock when a legislative committee recommended no appropriation to support it. Leaders of the Utah Legislature’s Higher Education Appropriations Subcommittee initially recommended an appropriation of $50,000 for the research. “I don’t know that that’s necessarily usable at that amount,” said Sen. Deidre Henderson, R-Spanish Fork.
