TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A Senate committee next week is slated to consider a proposal that would allow terminally ill patients to obtain medical marijuana to help cope with pain. The Senate Health Policy Committee is scheduled next Tuesday to take up the proposal (SB 460), filed by Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island. The bill piggybacks on a law passed earlier this year that allows terminally ill patients to gain access to experimental drugs that have not been approved for general use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
