LDS Church stepping away from medical marijuana fights

SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said it would step away from legislative spats over medical cannabis in the future. In an interview with FOX 13 on Thursday, Marty Stephens, the Church's government and community relations director, indicated they would not be weighing in on every cannabis bill that came through the legislative session. “We think the state is in a pretty good position right now for medical cannabis. It’s our intent now to let the legislature manage this issue. We’re not going to get involved in which doctor should be prescribing, which conditions should be covered. We believe there’s a good compromise in place now and it’s not an issue the Church intends to engage on further going forward,” Stephens said. Read more here >>>
