The Denver Post recently reported that a bill that would add autism as a qualifying condition for medical cannabis in Colorado has managed to pass committee approval and move to the state House floor for voting. The new bill passed the Colorado House of Representatives Health Committee with a 10-1 vote.
“As a mom, I want my child to stop beating his head against a wall,” Atchley said. Melissa Atchley, who attended the committee hearing, said she’s not concerned about the lack of medical evidence for cannabis’ effects on autism.
The bill now heads to the House floor for a vote.
