The Delaware House of Representatives is scheduled to vote today on a bill to legalize medical marijuana in the state. The bill passed in the Senate in March, with overwhelming approval, but if the House amendment passes, the Senate could see it again.

Under the terms of the bill, people with certain, specific, debilitating, serious, or chronic conditions that could be alleviated by marijuana would be allowed to possess up to six ounces of pot, so long as they have a written recommendation from their doctor.

The state senate changed the proposed minimum age for qualifying age from 21 to 18 before passing the bill on to the House, but yesterday, Representative Don Blakely (R – Dover) introduced an amendment to remove the age limitation entirely, making medical cannabis available to all patients who could benefit, no matter what their age.
