On this edition of HealthConnections, we’re doing something different. Dr. Carole Myers takes over the interviewing, and she’s talking with State Rep. Jeremy Fasion. The Republican from Cocke County says it’s time for Tennessee to legalize medical use of substances derived from marijuana. He co-chaired a legislative committee that examined the issue this year, and his bill will be considered in the General Assembly early next year.
Our look at the General Assembly continues on our next HealthConnections. State Senator Richard Briggs will preview upcoming health and medical legislation. Join us January 2.
