Louisiana Senate Passes Bill to Legalize Medical Cannabis

Louisiana’s large_15749_madmanogbud_1333590824Senate, with a 22 to 13 vote, has given approval to a proposal that would legalize medical cannabis, including state-licensed dispensaries.

If passed into law Senate Bill 143 would allow those with glaucoma, cancer and spastic quadriplegia who receive a recommendation from a physician to possess and use medical cannabis. Unfortunately, the measure would prohibit patients from actually smoking the medicine, though it would allow them to consume the plant through other methods such as vaporizers, oils, tinctures, edibles and topicals.
