From Kentucky: "Going around the clock starting at noon we have Ohio with 2 separate groups working on ballot initiatives. One group having had it's proposal certified by the Secretary of State. West Virginia has HB 3251 allowing for cultivation and pharmacies. Virginia has introduced both decriminalization and medical bills during the latest session of their Assembly. Tennessee has HB 254 and SB 251, The Safe Access To Medical Cannabis Act. Missouri will have HB 121 allowing for cultivation and pharmacies, and a ballot initiative on full legalization. Illinois has HB 30 which creates a 3 year pilot program of State registered patients and pharmacies, and finally Indiana has HB 1370 also allowing for registered patients and pharmacies...
"Recently the US Congress approved legislation that will allow for The District of Columbia to have medical marijuana with distribution thru pharmacies. The problem for those trying to stop medical marijuana is that under the concept of equal treatment under the law, Congress may have inadvertently let the cat out of the bag by authorizing medical marijuana in all the States. A reading of the law in this respect would have the effect of ending DEA raids in States that have medical marijuana laws." From State-Journal Dot Com Frankfort, Kentucky, Feb. 20, 2012.
