Aune introduces bill to protect medical marijuana patients in family court
On Wednesday, Representative Ashley Aune, D-Kansas City, introduced legislation that would modify provisions relating to medical marijuana program participants in family court matters.
Aune had told Greenway previously that she would be reintroducing 2021’s HB 1325. The bill, now HB 2440, will allow for family court participants to safely and legally use medical marijuana without repercussions from the court. The prior version of the bill was unanimously passed out of committee and was close to crossing the finish line in 2021. Aune attributed part of that success to working across party lines with Rep. Ron Hicks, R-St. Peters. “Representative Ron Hicks helped me move (HB1325) forward last year and I look forward to working with him again to make progress on the issue.”
