Kansas senator refuses to address hearing for medical marijuana bill

OSAWATOMIE, Kan. — After blockading medical marijuana legislation last year, Kansas state Sen. Mary Pilcher-Cook said she was bombarded through social media with obscene comments and hardcore pornography.

This year, her solution is to not talk about it at all.

Pilcher-Cook, R-Shawnee, succinctly declined comment after Kansas Watchdog asked if she planned to allow SB 09 a hearing anytime in the foreseeable future. Dubbed the Cannabis Compassion and Care Act, the bill — submitted in January 2013 by state Sen. David Haley, D-Kansas City — would establish rules and regulations for medical marijuana in Kansas.
