Solon Proposes Medical Marijuana Law

Medical marijuana could become a reality for some Idahoans if a proposal by a legislator from Moscow becomes law. Republican Tom Trail wants to make Idaho the 15th state to allow patients diagnosed with severe illnesses like cancer, muscular dystrophy, glaucoma and more to have access to marijuana grown and distributed through state-monitored dispensaries. He says if passed, Idaho's law would be the most restrictive in the nation while giving people an alternative to standard treatment. Trail, a 7 term lawmaker, introduced the measure now to give plenty time to start the dialogue before the 2011 legislative session/KIVI-TV.

Question: Should Idaho allow the use of medical marijuana?
