Libertas Institute works to improve Utah Medical Cannabis Act

The Utah Legislature will soon be holding a special session to make improvements to the Utah Medical Cannabis Act, based on the input and work of Libertas Institute. For months, the policy team has been meeting with regulators and stakeholders to identify opportunities to reduce bureaucracy and improve patient access—in order to make the program more free-market-friendly.

Drug decriminalization remains a top focus for Libertas Institute, because reforming the criminal justice system won’t ever be successful without addressing one of the biggest reasons why people enter the system in the first place. Also critical to success: finding solutions that divert people away from a system that often perpetrates more injustice than justice.
