Republican Rep Says Marijuana Legalization ‘Right Thing’ For Indiana Following Colorado Visit

Gov. Holcomb said during his campaign that he supports medical marijuana

Several years ago, it was said that Indiana would be one of the last states to legalize marijuana for any reason. But then, back in 2017, the state legislature surprised the cannabis advocacy community by passing a restrictive bill aimed at giving epilepsy patients access to the non-intoxicating derivative of the cannabis plant known as cannabidiol (CBD.) Since that law was signed by Gov. Eric Holcomb, the word on the street is medical marijuana is gaining some momentum at the State House. What was once a topic considered out of the question, at least by Republican standards, is beginning to find some of the support needed to carry it on to the next level.

If there is one Hoosier lawmaker that can be credited for leading the charge, it’s Republican Representative Jim Lucas of Seymour. He has spent the better part of the last year listening to voter opinions on this issue, introducing legislation to further the movement and conducting fact-finding missions in legal states to bring his argument arsenal up a notch in case he steps in the ring to duke it out for another round in 2019.
