BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Kansas lawmakers introduce bill to legalize medical marijuana


Lawmakers in Kansas on Wednesday introduced a comprehensive bill that would legalize the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes and create a medical cannabis advisory board, among a long list of sweeping changes.

H.B. 2017, which has eight co-sponsors, is a 69-page bill that provides guidelines for tracking medical marijuana distribution and managing the cultivation of marijuana through licensing. It also details certifications required for health care providers to be able to prescribe medical marijuana.

While the bill does not go into detail regarding which ailments medical marijuana can be used to treat, as other states have indicated, it would cap prescriptions at the equivalent of a 30-day supply, or “at least four ounces of dried, unprocessed medical cannabis.”
