Rep. Brad Daw, a Republican from Orem, said during a hearing Wednesday that the measures help dying people try another alternative that may help and provides a way for researchers to get marijuana locally.
Medical marijuana advocate Christine Stenquist says the state needs comprehensive medical marijuana legalization so everyone with chronic pain, and not just those with terminally ill conditions, can get relief.
She and other advocates are gathering signatures to get an initiative on the November ballot so they can ask voters to pass broad marijuana legalization.
