Medical Marijuana Law Signed in Delaware

Today, Delaware Governor Jack Markell signed a law approving the use of medical marijuana. His signature makes Delaware the 16th state (plus Washington, DC) to approve the medical use of marijuana.

The law is very restrictive compared to most other states. Only people over 18 with a limited number of extremely serious conditions will be allowed access to medical marijuana. All the medical marijuana has to be grown and dispensed at three state-licensed centers.

Beyond Delaware, there is the possibility that medical marijuana will soon be approved in several other states in the near future. Currently, there is a medical marijuana bill working its way through the Connecticut state legislature that has the support of Governor Dannel Malloy. In addition, there is movement underway to potentially put medical marijuana initiatives on the 2012 ballot in both Arkansas and Ohio.
