See updated reports on my webpage for KPOA Legislative Issues:

Those reports are updated throughout the week.

The last week was fairly busy with hearings. Most notably a hearing on CBD with 5% THC and a hearing on medical marijuana. We gave testimony on seven bills last week. Next week will be the last week of committee hearings except for exempt committees.

We have been told the CBD bill may be worked by the committee next week. We believe the medical marijuana bill went well, but we won’t know if there will be further action for a few days yet. We also expect the House committee to work the agricultural hemp bill again this week to consider adding the amendments proposed by law enforcement to mitigate some of the concerns we have. There will also be a hearing on creating a VINE Coordinator position in the Attorney General’s Office.
