More Work Needed on Rape Kits
Friday January 19, 2018

An audit suggests that Tennessee lawmakers require updates on the 9,000-plus rape kits statewide, including almost 7,000 in Memphis, that were awaiting testing in July 2014.
The state comptroller's audit says a 2014 law required a report on rape kits not sent to a Tennessee Bureau of Investigation lab or other lab, but didn't require updates, expedited testing or mandatory turnaround times.
TBI spokeswoman Susan Niland says New York district attorney grants helped send 6,900 Memphis kits to independent labs, with 2,900 remaining at labs.
Niland says other grants sent almost 1,300 kits from elsewhere to independent labs. Kits need to return to the TBI to review results.
Additionally, the audit says TBI didn't retain some documentation in the 2014 inventory, so auditors couldn't evaluate whether TBI precisely reported the backlog.

Senator Steve Dickerson of Nashville and Representative Jeremy Faison of Cosby announced the bill's filing Thursday amid wide support for medical marijuana in state polls.
The lawmakers said they believe the change could benefit 65,000 Tennesseans. Patients would have to have certain medical conditions, from cancer to post-traumatic stress disorder.
The legislation would not allow use of recreational marijuana.
The National Conference of State Legislatures said 29 states have medical marijuana programs, which vary in form.
State Republican lawmakers have been split on the issue. Senate Speaker Randy McNally of Oak Ridge has opposed any kind of marijuana legalization. House Speaker Beth Harwell of Nashville said she understands the need for medical marijuana, but has opposed recreational.
