[quote=“The Always Lovely Washington Post”]The District’s measure, like those elsewhere, specifies certain conditions and illnesses that qualify for medical marijuana. A patient who has HIV, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, cancer or a chronic debilitating condition will be able to receive a doctor’s recommendation to possess up to four ounces in a 30-day period.
Unlike in many states, the District law would not allow patients and caregivers to grow their own marijuana, at least initially; an advisory committee would later decide whether to permit cultivation. Until then, patients could only acquire the drug illegally or from five to eight government-regulated dispensaries.[/quote]
Like those Guinness commercials in the US used to say so succinctly: Brilliant!
