Republican Senator Ernie Lopez’s Senate Bill 60 has passed both Houses of the General Assembly and it is heading to Governor Carney’s desk for his signature or veto. This bill allows nurse practitioners and physician assistants to recommend medical marijuana for patients. It’s a simple bill, but it only applies to patients over the age of 18, whereas for those under 18, only physicians with specific specialties may recommend medical marijuana.
