SALT LAKE CITY — (KUTV) — Utah’s medical marijuana compromise breezed through the state legislature on Monday, making key changes to Proposition 2, which was passed by voters less than a month ago.
Gov. Gary Herbert signed the nearly-200-page bill into law just after 8 p.m. on Monday.
"Utah now has the best-designed medical cannabis program in the country," Herbert said of the bill's passage.
“This is not an easy issue,“ said Greg Hughes, Speaker of the Utah House and sponsor of the compromise that puts the state in charge of overseeing cultivation, manufacturing, processing and distribution of medical cannabis products.
