Idaho lawmaker to propose medical marijuana law

April 14, 2010

BOISE, Idaho (AP) – A Republican lawmaker wants to make Idaho the 15th state to legalize medical marijuana, saving chronically ill patients a trip across the border to Washington, Oregon, Nevada or Montana.

Moscow Rep. Tom Trail first proposed a measure to legalize medical marijuana in Idaho more than a year ago, but says a draft of the legislation fielded opposition early on from law enforcement and other groups.

He decided to try again after New Jersey then-Gov. Jon Corzine signed legislation in January granting chronically ill patients legal access to marijuana at state dispensaries.

Trail plans to introduce similar legislation during the 2011 Idaho Legislature and says his proposal, like New Jersey’s legislation, will be among the most restrictive medical marijuana laws in the country.
