Medical marijuana legislation was introduced in the Idaho House today, where Rep. Tom Trail, R-Moscow, introduced HB 370 as a personal bill. He proposed similar legislation last year; it got an informational hearing from the House Health & Welfare Committee, but didn't proceed. HB 370 would permit patients with debilitating medical conditions to be dispensed up to 2 ounces of marijuana every 28 days; they'd have to get it from state-authorized “alternative treatment centers”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: I support medical marijuana in concept. But am wary of medical marijuana legislation after reading about all the problems with it in Montana and Washington. Is it worth the headaches?
