Tennessee's medical marijuana bill is effectively dead for the year.

The bill's sponsor withdrew the Cannabis Oil Only Act in a Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

The sponsor said the votes for the bill as is weren't there, and he felt the bill as amended would put "us in a bad position" as it was "watered-down."

In its original state, the bill would have allowed people with certain health conditions access to cannabis oil.
