State lawmakers support bill to allow inhaling of medical marijuana, updating other cannabis laws

306

The House on Wednesday voted 82-0 to allow medical marijuana patients to inhale cannabis, sending the bill to the governor’s desk for final approval.
The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Ted James, D-Baton Rouge, does not allow smoking, but patients can inhale medical marijuana through a device similar to an asthma inhaler. Present law permits patients to consume medical marijuana through edibles, oils and extracts.
