California Hospice Patients Can’t Legally Use Marijuana on Site

California Hospice Patients Can’t Legally Use Marijuana on Site

The Governor of California “begrudgingly” vetoed a bill that would have required certain health care centers, including hospice facilities, to allow terminally ill patients to use medical marijuana on site. Governor Gavin Newsom lamented his decision, which he said he was forced to make because health care facilities risk losing Medicare and Medicaid funding if they allow cannabis use on their premises, Forbes reported. 

“It is inconceivable that the federal government continues to regard cannabis as having no medicinal value,” Newsom said. “The federal government’s ludicrous stance puts patients and those who care for them in an unconscionable position.”
