Is Medical Marijuana Legal in Tennessee?
No, currently medical marijuana is not legal in Tennessee. However, medical marijuana has been gaining support in Tennessee, as studies show it can benefit those suffering from conditions including cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. However, recent attempts by legislators to legalize marijuana for medical purposes have failed. It is likely, though, that we will see medical marijuana become legal in Tennessee in the near future. In the meantime, however, only legally prescribed drugs should be consumed in order to avoid criminal prosecution.
