> KANSAS SENATE BILL!
>
> SB 556
>
> Also known as the Medical Marijuana Defense Act, this act would allow
> physicians to make written recommendations that using marijuana would
> likely be of benefit to their patients. If arrested for possession of
> marijuana, a patient holding a recommendation from his or her physician
> would be able to assert an affirmative defense to any charges arising from
> his or her medical use of marijuana. If a court accepts the affirmative
> defense, it would mean that a patient could avoid criminal charges. The
> bill would not, however, protect patients from the initial arrest.
>
> Only seriously ill patients would be able to assert the affirmative
> defense. Qualifying conditions include: cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS,
> hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Crohn’s disease.
>
> Certain chronic or debilitating diseases that produce one or more of the
> following would also be covered: cachexia or wasting syndrome; severe
> pain; severe nausea; seizures (epilepsy); Alzheimer’s disease; or severe
> and persistent muscle spasms (multiple sclerosis).
