Senator Hawley said in a Fox4KC interview, “We now have a lot of data on marijuana use because we’ve got years of it being studied. We’ve seen study after study show that as it builds up in the body, and it does tend to linger it appears over time that it has detrimental long term health effects. It is a gateway drug. That is true.” September 2022
The state attorney general said last month that he was “inclined” to support one of the three medical cannabis legalization initiatives on the ballot, but he wanted to ensure that certain “guardrails” were in place to ensure that the program exclusively serves patients.
“I want to look closely at how the ballot language is structured,” he said. 2018
