New State Laws Permit Medical Marijuana Use In Hospitals

Legislation recently signed into law in Connecticut and Maine permit for the use of medicinal marijuana formulations by hospitalized patients.

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy yesterday signed legislation, HB 5450, to protect nurses who administer medical marijuana to qualified patients in hospital settings from any criminal, civil, or disciplinary action. Other provisions in the bill expand the pool of patients eligible for cannabis therapy to include those under the age of 18, and seek to establish a state-sponsored research program.

In Maine, Gov. Paul LePage recently signed LD 726 into law, which similarly protects hospital administrators and staff from criminal or civil liability if they permit qualified patients access to non-inhaled preparations of medical marijuana in hospitals. Under the law, patients would not necessarily be provided or administered medical marijuana by hospital staff, but could be provided cannabis products by third parties.

Illinois House Vote On Marijuana Decriminalization Measure Imminent

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, May, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Illinois medical marijuana hb 1I received the following alert out of Illinois. There’s still time to contact your Representative to let them know that you support decriminalization:

The Illinois House of Representatives is expected to vote on decriminalization as early as tomorrow, and this may be your last chance to help ensure the bill will pass. While the measure was supported by a large majority in the Senate, support is weaker in the House, and we need your help!

Please take a moment to ask your representative to vote in support of SB 2228.

This bill would remove the possibility of arrest and jail for the possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana and would lower the fine to between $100 and $200. It would also remove the possibility of a harmful criminal record for possession, which can last a lifetime. Finally, the bill significantly improves to the state’s current DUI law.

Advocates in Illinois have done an incredible job under difficult circumstances in working toward incremental improvement. Now is the time for one final push! SB 2228, sponsored by Rep. Kelly Cassidy in the House, is part of a multi-year effort to help move away from the harsh penalties currently in place, and help bring more consistency to possession laws in Illinois.
