Idaho Dispatch has been reaching out to parties involved in numerous issues across the state.
One of the biggest topics of discussion at the capitol this year is the issue of marijuana.
A proposal to constitutionally ban marijuana in all forms has already cleared the Idaho Senate. Several ballot initiatives are also underway to pass various forms of marijuana.
Additionally, Sgt. Jeremy Kitzhaber, a retired Air Force veteran is seeking to pass what he calls a “restrictive” medical marijuana bill in Idaho, House Bill 108.
Kitzhaber has a rare form of cancer that is in Stage 4 and says he takes numerous medications, including three opioids, to deal with pain and other issues as a result of his cancer treatment.
Kitzhaber’s bill is currently awaiting a public hearing in the House Health and Welfare Committee.
You can watch our interview with Kitzhaber in the video below for more details on why he is proposing the bill and what the bill does and does not do.
What form of marijuana, if any, do you support in Idaho or do you believe it should remain illegal in Idaho permanently?
