Opponents, supporters of Prop 2 press on in wake of medical marijuana compromise (www.parkrecord.com)
Critics argue that Utah’s Proposition 2, the statewide ballot initiative that would allow access to medical marijuana for terminally and chronically ill patients, would significantly increase recreational marijuana use.
To address those concerns, detractors and proponents of Proposition 2 have negotiated a compromise that would still allow for the use of medical marijuana by patients with a doctor’s recommendation.
Governor Gary Herbert said he would call the session to pass the legislation regardless of whether the initiative passes.
The compromise outlines regulations for the cultivation of medical marijuana, the processing of doctor’s recommendations and patient procurement of the drug.
Michelle McOmber, CEO of the Utah Medical Association, said there are several concerning elements in Proposition 2, including who can recommend a patient receive medical marijuana and a perceived lack of oversight for patients to gain access.
