Medical Marijuana for Washington, D.C.
Posted on Apr 20, 2010
Chronically ill patients in Washington, D.C., may be just months away from legally using marijuana to treat their conditions. The Washington Post is reporting that the D.C. Council today approved a bill that says "a patient who suffers from HIV, glaucoma, cancer or a 'chronic and lasting disease' may receive a doctor's recommendation to possess up to 2 ounces of marijuana in a 30-day period."
There are rules limiting the amount of marijuana they may possess, as well as where they may get it, and the patients may not grow it themselves.
