California pot exhibit aims for debate on provocative plant

In this photo taken on May 26, a visitor looks at Cannabis indica marijuana plants on loan from Dark Heart Nursery as part of the "Altered State: Marijuana in California" exhibit at the Oakland Museum of California in Oakland, Calif. Set against the backdrop of a California ballot measure in 2016 to legalize marijuana’s recreational use, the exhibition features artwork, political documents and posters, scientific and interactive displays meant to provoke questions and conversations about pot.

Senate Bill 211, Cannabinoid Product Act, was sponsored by Sen. Evan Vickers, R-Cedar City.

This bill put a framework in place, so that if Utah ever legalizes medical marijuana, it would already know how to handle it.

The bill was still in the Senate Rules Committee when the session ended, and never made it to the House of Representatives.
