Cannabis Policy Reform Timeline
- 1981: HB 314 created a research program that used cannabis or THC for cancer chemotherapy, radiology, or glaucoma. A Patient Qualification Review Board administered the program within the Board of Pharmacy. This board was authorized to contract with the federal government for cannabis. The program was repealed by SB 1818 in 1992.
- 2015: Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam signed SB 280, and the bill approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee legalized the ability to possess marijuana to treat a few severe conditions, including epilepsy. The bill has no provisions for legal sale, so patients have to purchase the drug outside the state of Tennessee; however, possession of CBD oil that the patient obtains outside of Tennessee is a misdemeanor charge.
- 2016: Tennessee updated its low-THC law by enacting HB 2144 on May 20, 2016. The law states that patients can legally possess low-THC cannabis oil with no more than 0.9% THC with medical or legal recommendations. They will need to have been diagnosed with epilepsy by a Tennessee doctor.
- 2017: The legislature enacted HB 1164, modifying Tennessee’s industrial hemp law to allow hemp production with 0.3% THC or less. The law requires hemp growers to obtain a license from the Department of Agriculture.
- 2021: The legislature passed SB 118, creating an essential study commission for medical cannabis and improving the CBD law by making it available for more conditions and increasing the allowable THC limit to 0.9%.
