Delegate David Englin hopes to revitalize a 30-year-old Virginia law which allows marijuana to be used for medicinal purposes

‚ÄčA medical marijuana bill is scheduled to go before a Virginia House committee on Tuesday.

Northern Virginia Delegate David Englin hopes to revitalize a 30-year-old Virginia law which allows marijuana to be legally used for medicinal purposes, reports Jerrita Patterson at CBS 6.
The bill, if passed, would allow doctors to prescribe marijuana for the treatment of medical conditions such as cancer and glaucoma. (Aye, that’s the hang. Doctor’s can’t “prescribe” a drug considered Schedule I by the feds; see below.)
