Voters to decide medical marijuana issue in November, but Hillyard says questions remain

LOGAN – It looks like Utah voters will make a decision this fall on whether or not to legalize medical marijuana.

Utah Senator Lyle Hillyard of Logan, however, said there are still questions being asked about how the legalization of medical marijuana would work.

“It’s against the law federally,” he said. “So you can’t bank money with it, a lot of it is cash. So that raises issue about how to handle the transaction. Secondly, the fact that we really haven’t tested it. We really don’t know the real impact on a controlled method so doctors can prescribe certain quantity of marijuana or certain circumstances to make it work.”

Organizers of the medical marijuana legalization proposal were happy about Tuesday’s announcement that it had been added to the ballot.
