Smoke weed everyday…D.C. passes medical marijuana law

May 5, 2010

They must be from California...

WASHINGTON (AP) – The D.C. Council has passed a measure to legalize medical marijuana, sending the bill to Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty.

Under the measure passed Tuesday, the nation’s capital would join 14 states that allow medical marijuana.

Patients with chronic illnesses such as HIV/AIDS or cancer could obtain marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation. It would be given out at five to eight distribution centers.

Patients would be limited to two ounces of marijuana per month. The mayor could raise the cap to four ounces if he determines more is needed.

If Fenty signs the bill as expected, Congress would have 30 days to review before it becomes law.

In 1998, residents voted to legalize medical marijuana, but Congress blocked the initiative from taking effect for years.

Two ounces? Is that really going to be enough?  What if your chronic illness is chronic?  Wonder if that will be good enough to get a recommendation?  The District is going to have to deal with a lot more than amounts.  Will doctors participate in recommending patients?

For the children, he is not really a Dr. You don’t have to listen to him and smoke weed.  That is only for adults.
