Dover -- The Delaware House approved use of marijuana for medical purposes today, but tacked on additional restrictions to require the drug is distributed in tamper-proof containers and prohibit smoking cannabis in buses and vehicles.The House voted 24-17 on Senate Bill 17, which must go back to the Senate for the upper chamber to consider the changes.
The legislation allows Delawareans with cancer, multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, post-traumatic stress disorder and other debilitating diseases to get a doctor's recommendation to use marijuana to treat their pain, nausea or illness. Qualified patients would be issued a state identification card.Three state-regulated not-for-profit dispensaries would be established in each county to sell and distribute medical marijuana to qualified patients and caregivers.Patients would have to get a doctor’s recommendation to smoke, ingest or use a marijuana vaporizer after other medical treatment or prescription drugs failed to work, said Rep. Helene Keeley, D-Wilmington West.“Whether you are diagnosed with cancer, whether you are diagnosed with MS, you must have tried other drugs,” Keeley said. “Those drugs must fail first.”Source: Delaware Online (DE)Author: Chad LivengoodPublished: May 5, 2011Copyright: 2011 Delawareonline.comWebsite: Medical Marijuana Archives
