Lawmaker tries to repeal hypnotism ban

January 21, 2004


— You are getting sleepy.

A state lawmaker today filed a bill to repeal a state prohibition on hypnotic exhibitions.

"I know many times where hypnotism may have been helpful," state Sen. Janis Lee, D-Kensington, said.

She said Kansas is the only state that prohibits hypnotism for entertainment or performance purposes. The prohibition carries a $50 fine.

A business in her district requested the repeal after trying to hire a hypnotist for entertainment, Lee said.
