Known as HB 1365, the measure looks to approve low THC cannabis for medical use by patients with debilitating medical conditions. Last night the bill filed by State Representative Eddie Lucio III passed with a big majority of 121 to 23 votes.

In a statement Lucio says, “This milestone, this win belongs to every single person who helped advocate for this.” Keep up with HB 1365 here:
