The debate may not officially be started in Baton Rouge over the legalization of marijuana, but ideas and opinions are already being floated in public.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal offered his thoughts on the rewriting of Louisiana’s medical marijuana statues.


“If there’s a legitimate medical need, I certainly would be open to making it available under very strict supervision for patients that would benefit from that.”

Jindal’s comments were reported by the Louisiana Radio Network in a report filed on Wednesday. Jindal also stated in the same report that he is still very much opposed to the legalization of marijuana for recreational use.

Voice Your Opinion On Legalizing Marijuana

The discussions over changes in the medical marijuana statutes and the possibility of legalized pot for recreational use were held earlier this week by the legislature’s Criminal Justice Committee.

Currently the use of medical marijuana is legal in the state of Louisiana, but selling marijuana for medical or any other use is deemed illegal. The Criminal Justice Committee met to begin the process of changing the legislation that would open the supply chain for medical use while maintaining strict controls over the distribution.
