Today TVA issued the following clarifying statement in response to the recently signed Mississippi law approving the growth and use of medical cannabis/marijuana.
We want to be clear about TVA’s position on the implications to our energy service to Mississippi customers: TVA has an obligation to serve our customers with safe, reliable, low-cost energy and we will continue to do so. There will be no interruption in service because of this newly signed law.
The broader issue is a complex one and represents a conflict between state and federal law. We are looking to the appropriate federal agencies for further clarification and have requested additional guidance.
Our service to our customers remains unchanged and we will continue to carry out our mission.
