|Two newly enacted measures that Rep. Ramone co-sponsored will expand an aspect of Delaware's medical marijuana law to provide additional help for juveniles.
Under House Bill 400 (as amended), Delaware minors experiencing pain, depression, or anxiety associated with a terminal illness can be treated with medical marijuana oils. Also known as 'Bob's Bill,' the new law will take effect November 30th. (In photo: HB 400 bill signing) The second measure, Senate Bill 181 (as amended), was signed into law on September 7th. It allows designated caregivers to administer cannabis oil to juveniles in schools and school buses. School nurses, employees, and contractors are precluded from acting as caregivers unless they are also a parent or guardian of the child receiving the substance.
