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

In 2023, ASA strongly recommends that legislators create legislation designed to imitate high scoring states within this report to provide comprehensive access to medical cannabis. ASA encourages Nebraska lawmakers to engage with patients and medical cannabis advocacy
organizations to build a safe and legal access model for patients, including authorizing a licensing system to support cultivation and sale of in-state medical cannabis and related products to patients.

Legislators should also consider permitting patients and caregivers to cultivate cannabis at home for medical use. Lawmaker inaction in Nebraska leaves sick and vulnerable residents without cannabis as an alternative treatment option that has already been proven safe and effective for millions of patients in other states. Legislators should introduce comprehensive medical cannabis legislation based on ASA’s State Medical Cannabis Program Model Legislation.
