It looks like Kansas might be getting medical marijuana, as its Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee heard a bill on Monday that would legalize it for some conditions.

Kansas has been hit hard by the opioid epidemic, and many believe legalizing medical marijuana could help lessen the epidemic. Marijuana is a useful substitute for many opiates. Many also want it legalized because of how it helps treat conditions like epilepsy.

If Kansas does legalize medical marijuana, it will become the 29th state to do so.
