Conn. Revisits Medical Marijuana

Join Together

A medical-marijuana bill that passed the Connecticut House last year but failed to advance further has been reintroduced, the Associated Press reported Feb. 16.

Sponsor Rep. Penny Bacchiochi (R-Somers) has personal experience with medical marijuana: she bought the drug on the streets 20 years ago to help ease the suffering of her husband, who later died of bone cancer. She said her bill would eliminate fear of arrest as one of the concerns faced by sick people seeking medical marijuana. "We are the ones who are afraid to purchase it for our loved ones in fear of prosecution," said Bacchiochi.
