NEW:Question 3 Passes for Medical Marijuana

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

 

Massachusetts voters have approved Question 3, a ballot initiative that removes state criminal and civil penalties for the medical use of marijuana by qualifying patients.

Patients diagnosed with debilitating medical conditions, such as cancer, glaucoma, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and many others will be permitted to possess up to a 60-day supply of marijuana for personal medical use.

In addition, non-profit medical marijuana treatment centers will be permitted to grow, process and provided marijuana to patients and registered caregivers. The amount will be determined by Massachusetts' Department of Public Health.

A maximum of 35 treatment centers could be established in 2013, with at least one but no more than five in each of the state's counties. The number of treatment centers could later be modified in future years by the Department of Public Health.
