Medical Marijuana Bill Passes In The House

A Bill on the state's medical marijuana system is also heading to the Senate.

Supporters say it's  necessary to combine the developing legal recreational marijuana market with the medical marijuana market.

Those opposed to the Bill say what it proposes doesn't match up with what patients need.

Changes under the Bill include reducing the amount of marijuana patients can possess from 24 onuncs to 3 ounces.

The Bill also requires the state to establish a patient registery.

Tracy Sirrine the owner of Patients for Patients medical, a business that allows individuals to get their medical marijuana licenses, has been following bill 2149 closely.  

She said one of the changes the bill proposes that would effect this area the most is the elimination of home growing and collective gardens.
