Proposed Nebraska Medical Marijuana Guidelines
On January 18, 2018 State Senator Anna Wishart introduced Legislative Resolution 293CA, a constitutional amendment that would legalize the use of medical cannabis for qualified patients. Medical cannabis would be available in any form including dry leaf, oils, tinctures, and edibles.
Qualifying Conditions: Any medical condition or illness, subject only to laws, rules, and regulations regarding the authority of medical professionals to recommend and dispense medical cannabis so long as such laws, rules, or regulations preserve or facilitate the right to use or consume medical cannabis.
If the Nebraska legislature passes this resolution, voters will have the chance to approve a medical marijuana measure on the 2018 ballot.
Information regarding medical marijuana businesses will be updated as the state advances legislation and releases more information.

In 2015, LB 487 was passed to allow for a narrow exception to the current ban in Nebraska on medical cannabis, for an orphan drug, a CBD derivative, that is going through the FDA approval process to treat Dravet syndrome.
LB 622 was introduced in January 18, 2017 to legalize medical marijuana use for qualified patients in Nebraska suffering from qualified medical conditions. The bill would have allowed for three (3) manufacturers, one in each congressional district and twelve (12) distribution center, four in each congressional district. The bill did not pass legislation but is currently on general file.
On January 18, 2018 State Senator Anna Wishart introduced Legislative Resolution 293CA, a constitutional amendment that would legalize the use of medical cannabis for qualified patients.

However, on April 18, 2018, the legislature indefinitely postponed action to move the resolution forward.
