This week, Speaker of the House Cliff Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) appointed OMA Chairman of the Board Bill Sopko to a bipartisan medical marijuana task force. The Speaker announced the creation of the task force at an evening press conference yesterday, January 14.
The purpose of the task force is to gather information from medical experts, and others, as to the efficacy of medical marijuana and issues related to its possible legalization.
In its resolution opposing the marijuana legalization issue defeated in the General Election last year, the OMA board of directors urged the legislature to do a thorough review of the issue medical marijuana. The OMA appreciates the Speaker establishing this task force.
