TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Could Kansas soon join the growing list of states allowing medical marijuana?

The election of Democrat Laura Kelly puts a medical marijuana supporter in the governor’s seat, and she recently said she senses “some momentum” among legislators to legalize medical marijuana with strict regulations, The Kansas City Star reported.

Medical marijuana bills have been considered without success for years in Kansas, even though several surrounding states allow recreational or medical marijuana. Missouri voters on Nov. 6 approved a ballot measure allowing for medical marijuana, joining nearly three dozen states.
