The head of the Ohio House panel considering legislation to legalize medical marijuana said April 28 that changes to the proposed law changes likely will be offered in coming days.
Rep. Kirk Schuring (R-Canton), chairman of the Select Committee on Medical Marijuana, said he expected a substitute version of HB 523 next week.
“I’ve been getting input from the committee, also from witnesses,” Schuring said following the committee’s sixth hearing on the bill. “In addition to that, I’ve had conversations with the administration and the Senate. So we’re endeavoring to come up with a substitute bill that hopefully we will be able to unveil sometime next week, and then we’ll see what the consensus is from that point.”
