Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly has proposed that the state should legalize medical cannabis to expand the state’s Medicaid program, according to a local KSHB report.

Kelly said the tax revenue generated from a medical cannabis program could fund Medicaid expansion for low-income residents, a priority that has been blocked in the state’s Republican-controlled legislature due to concerns about the cost, the news outlet reported.

Meanwhile, lawmakers introduced a medical cannabis legalization bill last month in the hopes that a regulated cannabis market could help boost the state’s economy.
