Bill would let medical marijana patients grow their own

Medical pot's been legal on Guam for 4 years, but no dispensaries have opened

 

Guam has had a law legalizing medical marijuana in place for years, but wrangling over the rules and regulations that would control dispensaries of the weed has stopped the law from being implemented and blocked the opening of the dispensaries.

 

Senator Louise Muna describes this bureaucratic impasse as unfair to patients--many of whom suffering from severe pain which the drug is established as easing.

 

Muna has introduced Bill 302-34 (COR), which she says, "would allow for temporary, limited home cultivation of medical cannabis." She says this measure and growing authorization would end upon the opening of a medical cannabis dispensary.

 

"I prefer that cannabis be available to patients through a dispensary, but I don't see it happening any time soon," said Muna.

 

Guam became the first U.S. territory to legalize medical marijuana in 2014. While the medical marijuana program remains at a standstill due to the lack of an independent testing lab, advocates are pushing for legalization of recreational pot on Guam.
