  1. San Diego OKs Medical Marijuana
    Wed, Feb 5, 2003


    The San Diego City Council voted to permit marijuana use for seriously ill patients on Tuesday, allowing those with doctor's recommendation to keep up to a pound of the drug.

    San Diego joins more than 15 California cities that have adopted rules governing medical marijuana use after the 1996 introduction of Proposition 215, a state ballot initiative legalizing medical use of marijuana. The measure leaves the specifics of implementation up to localities.

    Under the San Diego guidelines, the city will permit patients and caregivers to grow marijuana plants or possess up to a pound of marijuana if authorized by physicians to use the substance for medical purposes. The original proposal recommended allowing up to three pounds of marijuana, but members voted to cut the limit to a pound and add further restrictions, such as prohibiting the cultivation of marijuana plants outdoors.

    Mayor Dick Murphy voted against the guidelines saying the policy goes too far.
