Washington: Sen. Kohl-Welles Introduces Medical Marijuana Reform Legislation On Tuesday 36th District Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles, along with Rep. Jim Moeller of Vancouver and bi-partisan support, introduced new legislation to clarify and provide a strong legal framework for Washington’s existing medical marijuana laws.

The bill, according to Kohl-Welles, reflects the tenth iteration since she first released it last February, incorporating input from patients, providers, advocates, health professionals, government officials, legislators, and law enforcement representatives.

The resulting legislation, Senate Bill 5073 and House Bill 1100 if made into law, would establish a regulatory system for the sale and purchase of medical marijuana to qualified patients.
