HB74 – Amending the Medical Marijuana Act

A minor child that is a qualifying patient may need, in addition to their parents, a designated caregiver who is not their parent when the parents work and cannot regularly get to school to administer medicine. This bill expands the class of persons who can be designated caregivers to a minor qualifying patient. This bill would allow grandparents, aunts, uncles, and siblings, all over age 21, as persons who may be designated caregivers for a minor patient.

It seems like a simple fix to a problem discovered during the implementation of the original Medical Marijuana Act.  It has broad bipartisan and cross-party ideological support in parties.  Upstate and Downstate Republicans are sponsors.  Progressive and Moderate Democrats are sponsors.  So it should pass easily.

AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 16 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO DESIGNATED CAREGIVERS FOR A MINOR QUALIFYING PATIENT UNDER THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA ACT.
