Medical Marijuana Bill Passed By Connecticut Senate

May 7, 2012

A bill legal­iz­ing mar­i­juana for med­ical pur­poses has passed the Con­necti­cut Sen­ate. The state joins 16 oth­ers and the Dis­trict of Colum­bia in enact­ing such leg­is­la­tion. State sen­a­tors voted 21-to-13 in favor of the mea­sure early Sat­ur­day, after nearly 10 hours of debate dom­i­nated by bill oppo­nent Repub­li­can Sen. Toni Boucher. Demo­c­ra­tic Gov. Dan­nel P. Mal­loy, who has said he sup­ports the mea­sure, is expected to sign the leg­is­la­tion into law. The bill moves away from the largely crit­i­cized prece­dent set in Cal­i­for­nia, propos­ing a com­plex reg­u­lated sys­tem of cul­ti­va­tion, dis­pens­ing and licens­ing. The Con­necti­cut bill out­lines spe­cific dis­eases that would be treated under the drug. It requires a rec­om­men­da­tion from an individual’s physi­cian and estab­lishes a sys­tem of licens­ing for patients, care­givers and grow­ers.
