"Connecticut House Passes Medical Marijuana Legalization"

Fresh off passing a new law preventing any new people from being sentenced to die, the Connecticut House voted 96 to 51 last night to allow doctors to prescribe medical marijuana for certain medical conditions. If this bill ultimately becomes law, it will eliminate state enforcement of anti-marijuana laws against patients with valid prescriptions. Federal marijuana laws will remain in effect until Congress modifies or repeals them.
