Medical marijuana: Tom Massey says HB 1043, new MMJ bill, should help law enforcement

HB 1043, a new medical marijuana bill, combines legislative cleanup efforts by Senator Pat Steadman and Representative Tom Massey, co-sponsor of the MMJ measure that became law in June. Steadman admits that he doesn't agree with everything in the bill at this point, and neither does Massey, whose proposals include efforts to help law enforcement.
