Using marijuana for medical purposes cleared 2 legislative hurdles this past week with the Senate.

The Senate Health Care Committee voted for the measure on Thursday, two days after the judiciary committee approved an updated version compared to what it recommended earlier this summer.  The measure could be on the Senate floor next week.

The measure would let patients with a ”debilitating medical condition” purchase and use marijuana from medical cannabis centers if their physician signs off.

The state would collect fees from licenses depending on their revenues and ten licenses to grow and sell marijuana would be issued.
