2 Tennessee state lawmakers have decided to write a medical marijuana bill after President Trump. Rep. Bryan Terry (R) and Sen. Steve Dickerson (R) have named it the Tennessee Responsible Use of Medicinal Plants Act... TRUMP.

 

As much fun as this would be if the bill advocated recreational use of marijuana, it doesn't. 

The Hill reports the bill would increase research into the benefits of cannibis for medical reasons. 

"We believe Tennessee patients and physicians have the right to participate in research utilizing cannabis and that our agricultural, higher education, and life science industries are well equipped to be world leaders in this research," Rep. Bryan Terry explained in a news release.

President Trump did give off signals that he'd be in favor of a federal bill that would get out of state's way if they wanted to regulate marijuana.
