D.C. joins Maryland in a marijuana-liberalizing duet
No sooner did Maryland’s governor announce his intention to sign marijuana decriminalization legislation than a unanimously supported measure was introduced this week in the D.C. Council to stop limiting medical marijuana to HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, cancer and multiple sclerosis.
Now, under the proposed legislation, medical marijuana will be available for a qualifying medical condition, defined as “any condition for which treatment with medical marijuana would be beneficial, as determined by the patient’s physician.”
Thanks to the D.C. city council members supporting this measure. I look forward to seeing the amendment signed by the mayor, without interference from Congress.
