Medical marijuana for PTSD legislation heads to Colorado House for debate

By Alicia Wallace, The Cannabist Staff

Colorado legislation to add PTSD as a qualifying condition for medical marijuana is headed to the full House.

Rep. Jonathan Singer, D-Longmont, who co-sponsored the bill with Sen. Irene Aguilar, D-Denver, said he anticipates “a bumpy but positive outcome” for Senate Bill 17.

In a late-night vote Wednesday that followed seven hours of testimony, the House State, Veterans, and Military Affairs committee passed the measure in an 8-1 decision. Stephen Humphrey, R-Severance, cast the lone dissenting vote.

Singer said no significant amendments were made, other than the removal of “acute stress disorders” from the language.
