The Connecticut House of Representatives voted 96-51 this April to legalize the plant for adults with a prescription from a physician to relieve pain from various illnesses and ailments such as cancer, glaucoma, HIV and multiple sclerosis.
Under the provisions of the new legislation, licensed pharmacists could provide the marijuana to patients who have a physician's prescription. Patients would need to requalify every year. The bill also prevents all prison inmates and anyone younger than 18 from obtaining medical marijuana to relieve their pain, regardless of the extent of their illness.
Medicine Dispensing Systems is a leader in the medical marijuana industry, and provides unique and patented technology-based solutions that have gained acceptance in every state where the product is now legal. The company is considered the gold standard of how medical marijuana can be handled legally, transparently, and in full compliance of all state and local laws and regulations.
Medical marijuana eases pain and suffering for thousands of patients, and when properly prescribed and dispensed, creates a better quality of life for people with painful chronic conditions and debilitating disease.
The bill still has a few hurdles before passed into law, but it has wide spread support. Connecticut Representative Christopher Lyddy, a Newtown Democrat, said he supported the bill because of how devastating illness touched his own family.
"My father wanted just enough energy and comfort to hold his three new grandchildren,'' Lyddy told his colleagues. Lyddy's father passed away in 2006 from colon cancer.
The bill now moves to the Senate for further action.
