Idaho Senate Votes To Banish Cannabis Medicines
BOISE – Idaho’s Republican-dominated Senate have mustered the votes needed to pass a measure effectively banning cannabis in the Gem state with a 24-11 vote.
A proposed constitutional amendment that would prevent the legalization of pot and other psychoactive drugs has cleared the Idaho Senate and is headed to the House.
The Senate mustered the two-thirds needed with a 24-11 vote on Wednesday to approve a joint resolution that bans all psychoactive drugs not already legal in the state.
It will permanently ban medical cannabis for patients with terminal illnesses or chronic pain.
Backers say it’s needed because surrounding states have legalized pot and other drugs, and it could happen in Idaho.
If the House approves the legislation, it would go before voters in 2022, where it would need a simple majority. Republicans have super-majorities in the two chambers of the Idaho state government. Some Republican senators said they voted in favor of the amendment to simply allow voters to decide the issue at the ballot box.
