Excerpted from ASA's 2022 State of the States Report.

In 2023, ASA is once again recommending that legislators prioritize work focused on organizing a comprehensive medical cannabis program that provides legal protections to patients related to employment, housing, education, and family law, and develop an in-state production system for lab-tested medical cannabis and cannabis products that can be made available to patients throughout the state. ASA also recommends lawmakers not allow for a prolonged implementation period; Kansas patients have been made to wait long enough. Legislators should introduce comprehensive medical cannabis legislation based on ASA’s State Medical Cannabis Program Model Legislation.
