Ma Black reported on yesterday’s meeting of the Health & Human Services Interim Committee to consider “Utah Medical Cannabis Act,” draft legislation proposed for a Dec. 3 special session of the Utah Legislature. The bill would replace Proposition 2, which voters passed at the polls in November.

Living with Lupus, a chronic auto-immune disease, which, by the way, is no longer on the list of chronic diseases covered by the bill lawmakers are crafting to replace Proposition 2. Guests: Annette Lee and her daughter, Olivia, who was diagnosed at the age of 7 — at the time, the youngest person in Utah diagnosed with the chronic auto-immune disease.
