June 4th, 2009 – DOVER, Del. (AP) – A bill that would allow the use of medical marijuana in Delaware has cleared a Senate committee. The Senate health and social services committee released the bill Wednesday after a 90-minute hearing in which no one spoke against the measure.
The bill would allow people with debilitating medical conditions such as glaucoma, cancer, AIDS and multiple sclerosis to use marijuana to treat their condition or alleviate their symptoms.
Sen. Margaret Rose Henry, the chief sponsor, said the bill will need to be revised and clarified before being brought up for a vote by the full Senate.
