US (UT): House and Senate pass MMJ research bill

Research into medical marijuana could become legal in Utah, if not medical pot itself.

The House unanimously concurred Wednesday to earlier Senate amendments to HB130, and sent it to Gov. Gary Herbert for his signature or veto.

The bill permits the study of cannabinoid products for medical use and creates a review board to consider potential recommendations for future marijuana policy.
