State Bills Keeping Medical Marijuana Patients on Organ Waiting Lists
from By Chelsea Adams
Legislation in several states is aimed at keeping medical marijuana patients from being booted off organ transplant waiting lists. The situation has come to the forefront as more and more states legalize the use of medical marijuana. The most recent bill to come under consideration is in Maine, where a hospital deemed a man unsuitable for transplantation surgery because he had used medical marijuana to treat the side effects of Alport syndrome.
