MD Senate Approves Medical Marijuana Bill

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - One of several highly-debated marijuana bills this year easily passed in the Maryland Senate.

The bill would allow seriously-ill Marylanders with certain qualifying conditions to use medical marijuana if recommended by a doctor. We're told marijuana possession limits and regulations governing cultivation and dispensary facilities would be determined by the state prior to any implementation.

Last April, Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) signed a bill into law that allows residents with serious illnesses to obtain medical marijuana via state-regulated programs administrated by academic medical research centers. To date, no research programs have been approved.

The bill now heads to the House.
