Massachusetts: Lawmakers Fail To Consider Medical Marijuana Expansion Measure

Posted by on October 29, 2016

Lawmakers failed to move legislation forward to protect patients approved by physicians and certified by the Department of Public Health to access medical marijuana. 

H. 2065 sought to protect qualified patients from discrimination. The measure would have no longer permitted employers, landlords, hospitals, universities, and family services to discriminate and/or sanction individuals based solely on their status as a state-qualified medical marijuana patient. 

The bill also sought to allow nurses, hospice providers, and caretakers over 21 years of age to become personal caretakers to qualified patients without requiring them to obtain a registration card, and provides for reciprocity for out-of-state patients.  

NORML would like to thank those of you who contacted your state lawmakers in support of this legislation.
