A state Senate health panel has advanced legislation proposing the authorization of legal dispensaries for medical marijuana in the Louisiana, a move that bodes well for the bill's ultimate passage.

The Louisiana Legislature legalized marijuana for medical purposes in 1991, but there's no mechanism in current law that allows for the legal dispensing of the drug. Doctors can legally prescribe it, patients can legally use it, but they don't have a middleman. Mills' Senate Bill 143 gives legal authority to the Louisiana Board of Pharmacy to set rules regulating.
