The state House has approved a bill updating regulations regarding Delaware's medical marijuana program.

The legislation passed unanimously with no debate Tuesday. It now goes to the governor, and defines the membership of a nine-member oversight committee that will evaluate and make recommendations regarding implementation of the program.

Under the bill, which passed the Senate earlier this year, two members of the committee will be medical professionals with experience in medical marijuana issues, and three will be individuals who have qualified to use medical marijuana.

The legislation also authorizes the State Bureau of Investigation to expedite state and federal background checks for designated caregivers and employees of the "compassion" center that will dispense the marijuana.

Officials have said they hope to have the compassion center up and running next month.
