The ruling for Amendment 2 will soon let us know whether or not smoking marijuana for medical purposes will be allowed by the Legislature or Department of Health.
The Legislator does not want to permit the smoking of marijuana because it is an “unhealthy act”, but John Morgan disagrees. Being one of the main contributors for getting Amendment 2 passed, he stated that he would sue if smoking was not allowed when the new rules came out. Morgan said “For them not to allow smoking, that is the opposite of what the amendment says. The only place where it says it can’t be smoked is public places”.
The rules will be released in July and implemented in October. The Legislature is thinking about having a session to work on a rules bill that fell through the last week of session. If they don’t, the Department of Health will then write the rules.
