MEDICAL MARIJUANA
(2008-03-04)
(wgvu) - MICHIGAN VOTERS ARE A STEP CLOSER TO
CONSIDERING WHETHER MARIJUANA SHOULD BE LEGALIZED FOR MEDICAL
PURPOSES.
A STATE ELECTIONS PANEL HAS OK'D PETITIONS THAT PUTS THE ISSUE
BEFORE STATE LAWMAKERS.
IF LAWMAKERS DON'T APPROVE THE MEASURE WITHIN 40 DAYS, THE
PROPOSAL WILL BE PLACED ON THE NOVEMBER BALLOT.
MICHIGAN LAW PROHIBITS MARIJUANA USE FOR ANY REASON.
BUT ROUGHLY A DOZEN OTHER STATES PERMIT MEDICINAL USE BY
PATIENTS.
THE MICHIGAN INITIATIVE WOULD LET PATIENTS GROW AND USE SMALL
AMOUNTS OF MARIJUANA FOR RELIEF FROM PAIN ASSOCIATED WITH CANCER,
AIDS, MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS AND OTHER DISEASES.
A DOCTOR'S APPROVAL OR RECOMMENDATION WOULD BE REQUIRED TO USE
THE DRUG.
