Statement from Governor Markell on Medical Marijuana Law

News | Date Posted: Sunday, February 12, 2012



Statement from Governor Markell: “I am very disappointed by the change in policy at the federal department of justice, as it requires us to stop implementation of the compassion centers.  To do otherwise would put our state employees in legal jeopardy and I will not do that.   Unfortunately, this shift in the federal position will stand in the way of people in pain receiving  help.  Our law sought to provide that in a manner that was both highly regulated and safe.”
