Current Bill Summary

SB 794 - Under this act, a family court shall not prohibit a family court participant from participating in the state's medical marijuana program, including as a term or condition of successful completion of the family court program. A participant with a valid medical marijuana certification shall not be in violation of the terms or conditions of the family court on the basis of his or her participation in the medical marijuana program. Finally, the status and conduct of a qualified patient acting in accordance with the constitutional provisions relating to medical marijuana shall not, by itself, be used to restrict or abridge custodial or parental rights to minor children in a family or juvenile court proceeding.

This act is identical to SB 357 (2021) and substantially similar to HB 2723 (2020).
