Bill Changing Medical Marijuana Registry Rules Passes House

Augusta –

A bill that would give medical marijuana patients and caregivers of family members the option to register with the state’s Medical Marijuana Registry has passed the House.

Currently, a patient who is prescribed medical marijuana has to register with the Department of Health and Human Services, pay the state a $100 fee and sign a release of medical information.

If the bill passes, caregivers not growing marijuana for family members will still have to register.

The bill now heads to the Senate for additional approval.

    Of course registration should not be required.  Does the state require registration when a doctor prescribes other medications? Of course not. This is a doctor and patient decision  and the state requiring registration is a lame attempt of extortion.
