Analysis: This bill adds Fentanyl to the schedule 1 drugs and makes Marijuana regulated by the state for medical purposes a schedule 5 drug. The state should enforce contracts and rights, not limit rights and willing business opportunities through licensing and regulations. A study committee for whether hemp should be legalized is created. Hemp would greatly enrich the state.
