Guam – Attorney General Elizabeth Barrett-Anderson has confirmed that the final draft rules and regulations for Guam’s medicinal marijuana should be completed by tomorrow.

 

On mornings with Patti Arroyo on K57, Barrett-Anderson says that the draft rules and regulations should be wrapped up by Thursday where office will send the revised copy to Public Health director James Gilan. Barret-Anderson says from that point its up to Gilan to decide what to do with the revised copy. She says Gilan can either hold another public hearing or send the revised draft to the legislature. Gilan has told PNC that after the rules and regulations are done at the AG’s office, he will send them to the governor for executive approval. From there, the draft rules will go to the legislature.

 

“I can say, this Thursday we might be able to wrap it up and get a revised copy back to the director of public health and whether he wants to have another public hearing on it or take it as is and send it to the legislature are two possibilities,” said Barret-Anderson. “There are a couple of steps to go and there’s probably going to require some additional pieces of legislation that Senator Barnes is aware of.”

 

 

Barrett-Anderson says that medical marijuana on Guam is still “a long ways to reality.”
