Supporters say the bill’s approval marks a significant shift after years of medical marijuana-related bills stalling. The […]

    Indiana Senate OKs treating epilepsy with oil from cannabis

    INDIANAPOLIS — An Indiana measure that would allow some epileptic people to be treated with oil derived from cannabis plants has cleared the state Senate. Indiana is among the last states to forbid even the issue of marijuana extracts that are low in THC and high in cannabidiol, or CBD, the compound that studies suggest may help reduce epileptic seizures. The measure creates a registry for some physicians, nurses, individuals and caregivers to treat intractable epilepsy with cannabidiol and permits pharmacies to […]

    Indiana Senate votes down bill to appoint state superintendent

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Indiana Senate unexpectedly voted down a bill to make the state’s elected schools superintendent a position appointed by the governor. Kokomo Republican state Sen.

The House was scheduled to take up a similar measure later, but Speaker Brian Bosma said the Senate bill’s defeat “raises issues.” Democrats and some Republicans cautioned it will take choice away from voters and concentrate power in the governor’s office. Supporters, including […]

He envisions a designated moment for students to pray aloud according to their individual faith and believes prayer would benefit the student body. Bill opponents question the need for such a proposal, saying students’ freedom of […]
