Concerning the use of medical marijuana while on probation.
2016 Regular Session
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Liquor, Tobacco, & Marijuana
Current law prohibits a court from requiring that a person on probation refrain from possessing or using medical marijuana unless the person was convicted of a crime related to medical marijuana or, based on an assessment, the court determines that a prohibition against such possession or use is necessary to accomplish the goals of sentencing. The act eliminates the reference to the assessment and authorizes the court to base its decision on any material evidence.
