Voters in Guam have approved an initiative to legalize medical cannabis. With results tallied in 56 of Guam’s 58 precinct, the proposal is leading with 56% of the vote, indicating that victory is a certainty.
The initiative explicitly legalizes the medical use of cannabis for those who receive a recommendation from a physician. Specific details, such as how much a patient can possess or cultivate, is as of yet undetermined. The Department of Health and Public Services will be tasked with determining rules and regulations.
This victory in Guam is the first major victory of an election that will hopefully find several more states in the U.S. with legalized cannabis or medical cannabis.
