Sen. Ophelia Ford Sponsors Medical Marijuana Bill

(Nashville, TN) Senator Ophelia Ford, who is from Memphis, is co-sponsoring a bill to allow the sale and use of medical marijuana in Tennessee.

This means there is a bill in both the Senate and House in Tennessee.

Knoxville representatives Gloria Johnson and Joe Armstrong have also joined as co-sponsors.

The bill is named after a Tennessee family that recently moved to Colorado so their young daughter could use marijuana to ease severe seizures.

The family says the use in Colorado has eased their daughter’s condition.
