Lawmakers in a key committee are preparing to cast their final vote on medical cannabis on Wednesday.

The expected vote comes after it was unexpectedly postponed last week.

Medical cannabis has taken quite the journey at Capitol Hill. What’s left of the bill is once again facing its first full committee vote.

The bill was essentially gutted last week. Instead of a bill full of rules and regulations for growing and distributing medical cannabis, the sponsor amended the bill to only decriminalize possession of the cannabis oil for conditions, like cancer.

If the bill does not pass on this vote, it will be done for the year.
