Kansans of all political preferences celebrated earlier this month when the Kansas House of Representatives passed a bill in favor of medical marijuana.

While HB 158 passed with a 79-42 vote, indicating progress on the marijuana front, it still faces opposition in the Senate.

And even though one chamber passed this bill, it is long overdue. Of all 50 states, 36 have legalized medical marijuana.
