The Utah legislature met yesterday in a special session to discuss and vote on the Medical Marijuana Compromise Bill. Both the Utah Senate and House of Representatives voted by large margins to pass the medical marijuana bill, thereby replacing the ballot initiative voters has previously approved on November 6th. Since the bill passed with more than 2/3 support, it will go into effect immediately. Governor Gary Herbert noted: “[w]orking with trained medical professionals, qualified patients in Utah will be able to receive quality-controlled cannabis products from a licensed pharmacist in medical dosage form.”
