Attorney General Barrett-Anderson says that her office has completed its review of the rules and regulations for medical marijuana. 

Guam – Attorney General Elizabeth Barrett-Anderson says that she hopes to send the newly revised copy of the rules and regulations for medical marijuana to public health by the end of this week.

 

Barrett-Anderson said that her office has completed its review of the rules and regulations for medical marijuana. Barrett-Anderson says that the implementation of the 150 pages of rules and regulations for medical marijuana is still a ways off. Developing rules and regulations for medical marijuana is only a part of the process. Once the rules are complete Barrett-Anderson says the next challenge is setting up an infrastructure on Guam to be able to build a medical marijuana industry. This includes setting up systems for cultivators, cultivation sites, dispensary sites and dispensary agents. She says that senator Tina Muna-Barnes is developing companion legislation to go with the revised rules and regulations.

 

“I wish I could say These rules will now go down to the legislature and tomorrow we will be able to dispense medical marijuana to those who are in need of it, but its still a long ways off. The rules are just the next step. After that it’s the department of public health, implementing the rules and regulations or having cultivators cultivation sites dispensary agents or dispensary sites out there so it is going to take a little bit longer,” said Barrett-Anderson.
