Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Nug of the Month: Aug 2008
Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas says he's against a proposal to allow up to five dispensaries to be set up around the state for medical marijuana.

Douglas won't say if he'll veto the legislation if it reaches his desk. But he says Vermont is already at odds with the federal government in allowing some medical patients to use the drug, and he says the state shouldn't push the issue further.

Douglas' comments on Friday followed approval by the Senate Government Operations Committee of a plan to allow the dispensaries to provide marijuana to the 169 Vermonters now registered with the state as in need of marijuana.

Supporters say state law allows use of marijuana by very sick patients, and shouldn't require those people to get it from criminal drug dealers.
