Will Medical Marijuana Be Legalized in Nebraska?

The seeds of a discussion about legalizing marijuana for medical purposes have been planted in Nebraska.

Three members of the State Board of Pharmacy plan to quiz their colleagues about the controversial topic at the May 22-25 annual meeting of the National Boards of Pharmacy in Anaheim, Calif.

Board Chairman Rick Zarek, a Gothenburg, Neb., pharmacist, said the Nebraskans hope to learn more about "the pros and cons" of legalization and any problems that have arisen in the 14 states that now allow pot to be used for pain relief, appetite enhancement and other medical purposes.

"It's probably an issue we're going to have to address in the future," said Zarek, who said he has no personal opinion on the subject.
