Attorney Curtis R. Harrington II, of Nashville-based law firm Belcher Sykes Harrington, has been appointed by Gov. Bill Lee to serve as a member of Tennessee’s first Medical Cannabis Commission, according to a release. 

In 2021, the Tennessee General Assembly passed into law a bill forming the nine-member Medical Cannabis Commission and tasking the commission with drafting model legislation for the implementation of a medical cannabis program in Tennessee. 

HB2641 / SB2532, the bill which contains the recommendations and model legislation drafted by the commission, is being considered by the General Assembly this session, according to the release.
