just legalize it already
Delaware legalizes medical marijuana.
Delaware became the 16th state on Friday to legalize marijuana for medical use after the governor signed the bill into law.
The law allows patients who certify they have a serious medical condition such as cancer to possess up to six ounces, or 170 grams, of marijuana.
State-licensed centers will be allowed to grow the marijuana and dispense it to patients 18 and older.
Democratic Governor Jack Markell signed the bill in private without a ceremony, according to his office.
The state Senate passed the measure on Wednesday by a 17-4 vote.
California was the first state to allow marijuana for medical use in 1996.
Woohoo! Congratulations Delawarean humans! You will soon reap the profits of a balanced budget and happy citizens.
