House legislation is pending, HB 472, to permit qualified patients to cultivate their own medicine.
Under present law, qualified patients must purchase cannabis from one of a handful of state-licensed dispensaries.
House Bill 472 allows patients to cultivate up to two mature plants and up to 12 seedlings at one time.
Permitting patients the ability to grow their own personal use of cannabis assures that they have an uninterrupted supply of medicine. Passage of this measure is extremely important for those patients who lack means to reliable transportation or who do not have an operating dispensary in their area.
